The Dark Side of Chocolate

PRESENTED BY: Woodinville Meaningful Movies

Location: Woodinville, WA (click for map)

This film exposes the widespread use of child slaves in the cocoa industry. The film was produced by Danish journalist Miki Mistrati who investigated the use of child labor and trafficked children in chocolate production. While this is a difficult documentary to watch, we will have action steps you can take to know that you are helping to make a difference in this industry.
And we will highlight a local bean-to-bar chocolate company, Theo Chocolate, whose mission is: “source organic and fair-trade ingredients whenever possible and prioritize purchasing from smallholder farms. We partner fairly with cocoa and ingredient sourcing partners to pay them living incomes, with the goal of supporting thriving, resilient communities.”

Doors open at 6:45pm.
Free popcorn and chocolate samples. Donations gladly accepted.
Hope you can come!

Sponsors: Theo Chocolate - providing chocolate samples :>)
