SMU's Hughes-Trigg Center Hosts American Meat Viewing. Oh, And Free Burritos.
Maybe I'm a bit of a nerd, but I love a good documentary. SMU Students for a Better Society will host a screening of a new film that spends significant time not on the problems with our current food system, but on better ways of producing grub that people actually want to eat.
After the screening, a whole slew of panelists will discuss the film and address questions. Jon Taggart who owns Burgundy Pasture Beef; Jean Kazez, a professor at SMU and author of Animalkind: What We Owe to Animals, Judith McGeary, attorney, activist, sustainable farmer and founder of the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance; and others will lead what will hopefully turn into a lively discussion.
Here's the trailer...
And if you need more incentive Chipotle is co-sponsoring the event. They're giving away free burritos to everyone who attends.
If you're interested the event starts with 7:30 p.m. meet and greet, followed by the screening at 8 p.m. and a panel discussion at 9:30 p.m.
