Meet the Local Farmers behind YOUR food at the next First Friday Films!
SAIPAN – Discover the story behind your local produce at the next First Friday Films. Come see Nourish, Food + Community 6:30 p.m. at American Memorial Park.
Meet some local farmers and hear from the Saipan Sabalu Farmers Market Association, including member and farmer Asap Ogumoro. Following the movie, enjoy a tasty food demonstration using local produce from NMC CREES.
Have you ever wondered where your food came from? Was it produced locally or hundreds of miles away and shipped to your hometown? Nourish is a film celebrating fresh and wholesome food that’s both good for you and the community.
With interviews from Best-selling author Michael Pollan, Sustainable Food Advocate Anna Lappe, Chef and author Bryan Terry, and Dr. Nadine Burke, the film delves into how the choices we make affect our sustainable food supply. From the seed to your table, see how food connects every individual on earth.
First Friday Films is a monthly film series brought to you through a partnership with the National Park Service, Division of Environmental Quality, with generous support from community groups such as the Mariana Islands Nature Alliance.
The Pacific Historic Parks (formerly the Arizona Memorial Museum Association) Bookstore, located inside the visitor’s center, will be open until 8:30pm. All proceeds go to community education programs.
For planning purposes, the movie runs about 30 minutes long. As always, First Friday Films is free and open to the public. Find more information about the film at www.firstfridayfilmssaipan.blogspot.com. Subscribe to the blog for regular updates on upcoming events.
