Join Greening McGill for an evening of food politics and great tasting local food. HOLLY DRESSEL is an environmental activist and an organic farmer who lives outside of Montreal. She is a best-selling author of books on environmental subjects, and has co-authored two books with David Suzuki: "From Naked Ape to Super Species" and "Good News for a Change".

"Deconstructing Supper" is a film starring chef John Bishop leads viewers on an eye-opening and engaging journey into the billion-dollar battle to control global food production. Starting with a gourmet meal in his five-star restaurant, Bishop travels the world -- from farmer's fields to biotech laboratories to supermarket aisles -- on a personal quest to find out what our food choices are. Holly will be available to answer ALL your questions after the screening.

Free local food (including the famously delicious habeshan-style pies, sweet potato and cinnamon breads and apple cake bread!) will be provided at the screening by Organic Campus.

Hope to see you all!
