Slow Food International Terra Madre Day
International Terra Madre Day is December 10th, but Slow Food North Shore will be celebrating it on December 9th at our local cinema. During our celebration we will share with you a short video about Terra Madre in Italy and the community that makes it so special, while enjoying some local foods prepared by Slow Food members.
Terra Madre Day is an opportunity to celebrate “Mother Earth” and highlight local foods that are at risk of disappearing. One of Slow Food’s many programs is their Ark of Taste which identifies those foods along with the cultures and techniques related to their production and use, in an attempt to catalogue and preserve them. We invite you to nominate an endangered product in your area into the Ark of Taste.
Slow Food East End – Screening of “Fed Up”
Everything we’ve been told about food and exercise for the past 30 years is dead wrong. FED UP is the film the food industry doesn’t want you to see. From Katie Couric, Laurie David (Oscar award winning producer of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH) and director Stephanie Soechtig, FED UP will change the way you eat forever.

Food on Film: Cowspiracy
“COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret” is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. As eye-opening as “Blackfish” and as inspiring as “An Inconvenient Truth,” this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet.
