2016 Feast on This! Film Festival

October 13, 2016 6:08 AM | TLC Monadnock (Administrator)

The 7th Annual Feast on This! Film Festival features movies that educate our community about the diverse issues affecting our national, regional and local food and agricultural systems.

Monadnock Farm & Community Coalition chose films that will spark conversation and action around building stronger local, regional and sustainable food systems.


Just Eat It

6pm, Tuesday November 1, 2016 - Peterborough Community Theater

We all love food. As a society we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of food in the trash? 

The film will be followed by a discussion led by Hazel Gershfield, Gleaning Coordinator for Hillsborough County.  She will talk about local efforts to save food destined for the compost or trash.
Hosted by The Cornucopia Project
