The Arizona Science Center and Chipotle Mexican Grill are cooking up something green: sustainability, that is. An upcoming film and lecture series called Chew On This! will teach guests about food and the broader impact that food has on our health, the environment and society as a whole.
Taking place at the Arizona Science Center, the series will answer important questions like, “What foods are showing up on your dinner plate, and how did they get there? What’s the difference between organic and conventionally produced fruits and veggies? How does eating “out-of-season” increase our carbon footprint? What do bees really do for the food industry?”
THe series will begin on August 18, with a showing of the documentary FRESH, and will include appearances by guest lecturers Carole De Cosmo from Arizona Farm and Ranch Experience and Avondale Farmers Market, and Derek Slife and Christopher Wharton from Chow Locally.
Perfect for all ages, these events are designed to be fun and creative while teaching valuable and important lessons. For a complete schedule of the series, click here.
