Food, Inc is coming to Birmingham Labor Day weekend! Here’s the 411: All showings will be at Bottletree Cafe. There will be two showings Saturday, September 5. The 1pm showing will feature a local-inspired brunch menu; the 5pm showing will have a local happy hour menu. Tickets for those shows are $7 each, food is extra.
There’s also one showing on Sunday, September 6, at 4pm, and it will be followed by a panel discussion and a local Sunday dinner prepared by Bottletree and Chef Chris Dupont from Cafe Dupont. Tickets for the Sunday showing are $18 each and include dinner.
This showing came about because of the persistent efforts of Amanda Storey, author of the blog Food Revival. She’s pulled together a lot of people and organizations involved in food in Birmingham to support this effort, including Jones Valley Urban Farms, Slow Food Birmingham, the Alabama Sustainable Agricultural Network (ASAN), Jefferson County Childhood Obesity Task Force, Bottletree, and Whole Foods Market.
Some members of the Foodie Book Club have also been helping Amanda–thanks to you all!
