Fair Food

Fair Food is Australia’s first feature-length documentary that tells the story of our farmers, social entrepreneurs and communities pioneering new approaches to food production, marketing and distribution.

Our current food system is broken – two supermarkets control 75-80 per cent of the grocery market, cheap imports undercut local producers markets and farmers are walking off the land in droves. But Fair Food reveals a countercurrent to these trends – a fair food movement that’s gathering momentum, led by biodiverse family farmers, independent food enterprises, and communities and individual food buyers around the country.

Munch Crunch Organics and the Regional Food Network (Southern Cross University) are screening this film to raise awareness about the importance of support our local food system in the Northern Rivers and showcase some great examples of local food movements in our community in the panel discussion following the film screening.

Tickets are available at the Byron Theatre, $15, Monday 23 March (doors open 6:30 for 7pm start). Click here for tickets.
