Celebrate Women’s History month and women’s roles in the food movement this March at a free community screening of Terra Firma. The film follows 3 female veterans as they transition back into civilian life, finding solace in farming which gives them a new way to serve their country by growing food for their communities.
Food Literacy Center’s Sacramento Food Film Festival has partnered with the Sacramento Public Library, the California State Library, Farm to Fork, UC Davis, The World Food Center, the Sacramento Food System Collaborative, and the California Commission on the Status of Women to celebrate female veterans and farmers with a night of camaraderie and discussion.
Enjoy appetizers from Hot Italian & drinks from local female chefs at the reception before the film. Stay for a panel discussion with a star of the film, Sonia Kendrick and Kelly Carlisle of ANV Farms, a local female veteran farmer following the film. Guests will include many of the women who have been listed in Sacramento by Girls on the Grid as leading the farm to fork movement. A reception at 5 pm will feature appetizers made by female chefs with beverages provided by female brewers, wine makers and coffee roasters. The screening of Terra Firma will begin shortly after 6 pm
This event is FREE, but requires RSVP to attend. Event is subject to capacity and availability.
