Food, Inc.

BOC proudly donated a salad to the Neighbors For Better Neighborhoods screening of the documentary FOOD, INC on June 8th 2010. Having seen it previously on PBS, Mary felt the message exposing our ignorance of how corporations produce cheap, chemically laden food was an important eye-opener. The salad was made of mixed greens & micro-greens from a local Pfafftown farm, goat cheese from Laurel Ridge, mint from Mary’s own garden, pecans, dates and orange sections with a honey-lime-mint dressing (made from local honey and mint from Mary’s garden). She also invited raw food chef Tricia (known to most as Nutricia), who brought several raw, vegan, organic, gluten free dishes (vegetable chili with cashew nut ‘sour cream’, white chocolate lemon bars and her delicious veggie wraps). We enjoyed the opportunity to support our community, and hope this kind of event will get the word out about Neighbors For Better Neighborhoods and the importance of knowing how you’re casting a vote every time you buy something to eat.
