“How the food industry sugar-coated science, sweetened the food supply, and seduced a planet, one spoonful at a time.”
“How did the food industry get us to stop asking the question: is sugar toxic? It all starts with a secret PR campaign dating back to the 1970s. For forty years, Big Sugar deflected all threats to its multi-billion dollar empire, while sweetening the world’s food supply. As obesity, diabetes, and heart disease rates skyrocket, doctors are now treating the first generation of children suffering from fatty liver disease. The sugar industry is once again under siege. They dodged the bullet once. Will they do it again?” IMDB score = 7.7/10

Our June movie is the second film by Canadian couple Grant and Jen. If you saw their first film ‘Clean Bin Project’, then you wont want to miss this. It’s now all about food waste, and it looks brilliant. Come join us, all welcome!
“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 it in the trash? Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food. What they find is truly shocking.” IMDB score 7.8/10.
