People interested in what foods they put in their mouths may want to attend a documentary screening this Thursday on food awareness.
Local realtor Bobbi Blair has been working with others, campaigning to make people aware about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and how these altered items are ending up in people's food.
Food and health documentaries are being shown to encourage awareness and dialogue. Blair said more and more people are becoming interested in these issues.
"Beyond the films the benefits arising from our Langley screening events has been getting to know who our local food producers area, and start a community conversation about what food means to us," she said.
The March 14 screening takes place at the Langley Township Civic Facility at 7 p.m. The film being shown is Good Food.
Invited to speak about their operations will be producers from Dave's Orchard in Langley and God's Little Acre in Surrey.
The film Food Matters will be shown at the same location on March 28.
Tickets cost $6.50 at the door.
She's created the website www.gmofreelangley.com to help spread the word.
The documentary screenings started last autumn because she and others were so concerned about what's happening to the food supply and the environment.
She said a positive outcome has been the increased networking that's getting done as producers meet members of the public and local residents learn more about the food supply.
Last week Blair met with the Langley City environment committee.
Blair said she'd like to see Langley "brand" itself as an environmentally conscious community that relies on sustainable agriculture and not GMO and harmful activities.
