Attend the Chicago Debut of "Ingredients: The Local Food Movement Takes Root"

Do you love local food? Do you care about where your food comes from? Buy tickets for Ingredients: The Local Food Movement Takes Root, a new documentary by Brian Kimmel. Ingredients focuses on the small ways that consumers can change the food world, presenting an encouraging message of possibility and change. Huffington Post called it an "eloquent, edible argument for sustainability and seasonality," and you can see it right here in Chicago. Plus, get some great food from Gaztro-wagon at the same time.

Jim Javenkoski, founder of Local Food Wisdom, is presenting the screening at Logan Square Kitchen on Tuesday, February 22nd. The movie starts at 6:30. The cost is $25, which includes the food from Gaztro-wagon - a great deal if, like us, you live where food trucks never come. There will also be a cash bar, stocked with beers from Revolution and Haymarket. After the movie, guests can attend a panel discussion with Beth and Brent Eccles of Green Acres Farm and Marianne Sundquist of In Fine Spirits. Purchase your tickets here.

Logan Square Kitchen is located at 2333 N Milwaukee Avenue.
