January 31, 2012 Film Screening and Panel: Eating Alaska

January 23, 2012

The Department of Nutrition and Dietetics at Thomas Jefferson University and Hospital presents Eating Alaska, a 57 minute film about the “wry journey for the ‘right thing’ to eat” followed by a panel of local food experts in Philadelphia.  The event will take place on January 31, 2012 from 5-7 at 1020 Locust Street, Jefferson Alumni Hall, 2nd Floor, Brent Auditorium  in Philadelphia.

“What happens to a vegetarian who moves to Alaska and marries a commercial fisherman and deer hunter? With humor and compassion, the documentary Eating Alaska shows natives and non-natives trying to balance buying industrial processed foods with growing their own and living off the land in the 21st century. Made by a former urban vegetarian now living on an island in Alaska, it is a journey into regional food traditions, our connection to where we live and what we put into our mouths.” as quoted on the films website.   See the trailer:

– Shelley Chamberlain, R.D., Assistant Director of Dining services at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital
– Zoe Lloyd, Local Food Operations Manager at Common Market Philadelphia
– Alyssa Moles, Farm to School Program Coordinator at The Food Trust
– Casey Spacht, General Manager of Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative
