From Bronx Style Beekeeping to Farmers For America, these films tell the stories of rural farmers who have worked their land for generations, entrepreneurial food-conscious Millennials and others who fight each day to provide “Good Food” to America. The films will be followed by a panel and Q&A session with the filmmakers and local farmers and then a “Meet Your Makers” Reception where filmmakers and movie goers can mingle and enjoy some complimentary snacks—of course featuring local foods. Free with a cash donation or nonperishable food item for the Chatham Silent Food Pantry.
