Green Film Series: Lunch, Love, Community

Lunch Love CommunityAs the summer ends and our kids return to their classrooms, the Montclair office of Environmental Affairs and Community Green proudly present “Lunch Love Community” — a beautiful film about transforming local food systems. The screening will be held on Thursday, September 15, 6:30 p.m., at the Montclair Public Library, 50 South Fullerton Avenue. All events at the Library are free.

“Lunch Love Community” is an engaging story of how a diverse group of pioneering parents and food advocates came together to tackle food reform and food justice in their local schools and neighborhoods.

Through a mosaic of twelve interconnecting short documentaries, the film explores food and education, children and health, and citizens making real changes.

This is a rich and multi-dimensional story of passion, creative energy, and idealism — a project linking the ways we teach our children to eat and understand food to the traditional passing of powerful values from one generation to the next.

“Lunch Love Community” is divided into three thematic programs — Heart, Body, Mind — each containing four short films exploring a range of topics from nutrition and health, to equity and justice, citizen participation, public policy, and school reform.

Please join us, and bring a student or other family member, a friend, or your neighbor for this entertaining and informative film screening and an open public discussion afterwards.

Green Film Series: DamNation

damnationJoin us tonight when Montclair’s Environmental Affairs office and Community Green proudly present the free screening of the powerful film DamNation on Thursday, August 18, 6:30 p.m., at the Montclair Public Library, 50 South Fullerton Avenue.

DamNation explores a sea change in our national attitude about big dams, from engineering marvels to a growing awareness about the life and health of our great scenic rivers.

Dam removal has gone mainstream, allowing rivers to bound back to life, and giving salmon and other wild fish the ability to return to primeval spawning grounds. Using archival footage and images of vivid beauty, DamNation documents the undeniable momentum behind river restoration that has begun to take hold in our country.

Please join us, and bring a friend, a family member, or your neighbor for this entertaining and informative film screening, and the open public discussion afterwards.

For further information, please contact the office of Environmental Affairs at 973-509-5721, or, grussell@montclairnjusa.org.
