“What are we eating?” with the Y

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

The South Shore YMCA in Hanover, the South Shore Natural Science
Center and Sustainable Hanover are collaborating to empower and
educate healthy eating, sustainability, community connection and
environmental responsibility through a thought-provoking film series
called /What ARE We Eating??? /

“Our collaborative effort began with an idea to build a garden in
2009” says Kim Engle, Arts and Education Director at the South Shore
YMCA; “we collaborated with Sustainable Hanover and found ourselves
with a portable greenhouse, a successful sustainability fundraising
event and the realization that we need to do more education.”
Sustainable Hanover and the South Shore YMCA continued their joint
efforts with a few small film events, kids’ events and teen events.
In September of 2011, the Y began its official partnership with the
South Shore Natural Science Center and the film series was realized.

This month’s film will be held at 7:00 p.m. at the South Shore
Natural Science Center on:

/February 16, 2012/
*/FRESH/**–*celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people
across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has
witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an
industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination,
environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid
obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a
practical vision for a future of our food and our planet. “Where
FRESH departs from Food Inc., The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and most other
food documentaries of late, is that FRESH is downright hopeful.” –

Stay tuned to ATOTW for details regarding the film in March! For more
information about any of these programs, please contact Kim Engle at
