In celebration of Food Day 2012, the Nutrition Class of Cleveland State Community College, in collaboration with the North Georgia Health District, will present the film “Dirt! The Movie” on Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. in the George R. Johnson Cultural Heritage Center Theater.

Additionally, the class will have poster presentations related to key features of the movie and Food Day 2012 starting at 6 p.m.

Food Day is a nationwide celebration of and movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food culminating in a day of action on Oct. 24 every year.

Food Day aims “to bring us closer to a food system with real food that is produced with care for the environment, animals, and the women and men who grow, harvest, and serve it.”

Karen Rutledge, Cleveland State adjunct instructor, said, “I feel this Food Day celebration will highlight the benefits of eating Real Food, bring awareness of the many avenues to finding Local Food in our community, and at the same time present a film about the vision of a sustainable relationship between Humans and Dirt.”

Rutledge went on to state, “We encourage people to donate a non-perishable food item to the Caring Place as their ticket for the movie.”
