Free screening of 'American Meat' tonight at the 6th Street Community Center

From the EVG inbox...

Here's a little more about the documentary via the film's website:

American Meat is a pro-farmer look at chicken, hog and cattle production in America.

Beginning with a history of our current industrial system, the feedlots and confinement operations are unveiled, not through hidden cameras, but through the eyes of the farmers who live and work there. From there, the story shifts to Polyface Farms, where the Salatin family has developed an alternative agricultural model based on rotational grazing and local distribution. Nationwide, a local-food movement of farmers, chefs, and everyday people has taken root... But could it ever feed us all?

The 6th Street Community Center is between Avenue B and Avenue C.
