Where does our meat come from?

“Eating Animals” is the feature-length documentary adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s critically acclaimed book of the same name. The film reveals through intimate narratives what has happened to our country in the past 40 years as we have moved away from traditional farming communities to massive industrial farming complexes that produce a seemingly endless supply of so-called “cheap” meat, eggs, and dairy. What starts out as a simple question – where does our meat come from? – quickly takes us down the rabbit hole of today’s industrial animal agriculture and becomes an exploration of the ultimate stakes of eating animals, the destruction of farming, and the complete unwinding of the American mythos.

Please join Meaningful Movies : Sustainable Ballard on Sunday, March 31st @ 7:30pm at Peddler Brewing, 1514 NW Leary Way, for a screening of “Eating Animals.” We invite you to stay after the film for a presentation and discussion led by Rachel Bjork.

In 2000, Rachel got involved with the local group, Northwest Animal Rights Network (NARN), and she has been an active member ever since. She has served on the Board of Directors for many years and is currently the Board President. Rachel feels compelled to fight for animals – human and non-human ones. Animals Rights Advocacy is where she has found her passion, her joy, and her purpose.
