Food for Thought Film Series

Six times per year, the Moscow Food Co-op partners with the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre and individuals in our community to present Food For Thought, a free film series open to all! No ticket purchase is required, however guests are encouraged to “pay what you want” to help support the film series.

Join us for stories about food, agriculture, cooperatives, and conservation, often including a presentation from a local expert or community leader related to the subject of the film. Check below for the trailers and a brief description of the upcoming films.


August 28 — Paris to Pittsburgh

“From coastal cities to America’s heartland, Paris to Pittsburgh celebrates how Americans are demanding and developing real solutions in the face of climate change. And as the weather grows more deadly and destructive, they aren’t waiting on Washington to act.”

September 18 — Just Eat It

“Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away.”

October 16 — Sustainable

A vital investigation of the economic and environmental instability of America’s food system, from the agricultural issues we face — soil loss, water depletion, climate change, pesticide use — to the community of leaders who are determined to fix it. Sustainable is a film about the land, the people who work it and what must be done to sustain it for future generations.
