New CFCA Website

The Community Food Connection Association has just launched a new website for their unique organization. The CFCA is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers, agencies and community members concerned about food, nutrition, health and social justice as well as the environment and local agriculture.

The new website focuses on updating the looks and aesthetics of the old site as well updating the resources available on the site. Some of the initiatives of the association now include: Good Food Club, Community Kitchens, Community Gardens, and the Food Charter. The initiatives help to bring concepts of both local food and  food security in a community-type environment to Medicine Hat. New community functions and interactive elements are also scheduled as future updates on the new site.

In related news, the CFCA will be presenting the documentary, Food, Inc. at the Monarch Theatre tomorrow night (Monday, March 8th at 6:30PM). Read about the event here.

Food, Inc. at the Monarch Theatre

Food, Inc. is an American movie and documentary that exposes the industrialized food system and its effect on our environment, health, economy and workers’ rights. It is directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, Rober Kenner and was originally released in Canada on September 7th, 2008. The documentary generated extensive controversy as it was heavily criticized by large American corporations engaged in industrial food production. It is being presented by the CFCA (Community Food Connections Association) and its partners.

The showing is taking place on Monday, March 8th, 2010 and the doors will open at 6:30PM and the movie will start at 7:00PM. Healthy local snacks will be provided. This one-time free showing is in celebration of the community wide launch of the Medicine Hat Food Charter.
