Well.I.Am week begins on Monday, October 17th with a viewing of Food, Inc. This documentary film directed by Robert Kenner is an eye-opening experience to say the least. Trust me, I’ve seen it before. You will cringe, gasp and possibly even lose your genetically modified dinner. Food Inc. takes a deeper and shocking look at what we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as Americans and where we are going from here. Eat a light meal and prepare your stomachs before joining us at 8p.m. on Sweetheart Circle for a viewing of Food, Inc.
Don’t worry the next day about consuming the foods you saw the night before, because The Main Street Farmer’s Market will be at the Williams Center from 10a.m. to 2p.m. Our hard-working local farmers, selling the best quality and freshest food on campus will be there to greet you!
For all of those curious about the large-scale agricultural food production in the United States, Food Inc.’s direct Robert Kenner will be on campus at 7p.m. in the Russell Union Ballroom. He will make you think about what you eat and how it contributes to our Nation’s wellness as well as your personal wellness.
Throughout the rest of the week there are numerous other activities you can partake in to boost your overall wellness..
On Wednesday, October 19th enhance your intellectual wellness with a round of trivia at the Williams Center, Student Center Multipurpose Space at 6p.m. Gather your teams of 8 to 10 friends, professors or anyone on campus and email your names to firstname.lastname@example.org.
