Future of Food.jpg Througout October, the Chicago History Museum is running a free film series devoted to food and food activism. The date for the first movie, Food Inc., has already passed (though if you have Netflix Instant View, you can watch it there), but there are two more upcoming films. On October 10th at 1:30, CHM will be showing The Future of Food, Deborah Koons Garcia's documentary on the growing pervasiveness of unlabeled, genetically modified foods and their place in grocery stores. On October 17th at 1:30, FRESH will be screened; FRESH features author Michael Pollan and "celebrates the American farmers and business people who are re-inventing our food system. We've seen the Future of Food, and it's definitely worth watching - and we'll probably be checking out FRESH when it screens.

All films are free with museum admission. The Chicago History Museum is located at 1601 N. Clark Street.
