McMinnville screening health documentary, Fed Up, on April 11

Our health is the most precious resource we have. As our understanding of how to maintain it improves and changes, holding on to outdated conventions just seem silly, but that’s what we are doing. In Fed Up, a documentary by award-winning director Stephanie Soechtig, viewers explore new breakthroughs in our understanding of how diet and exercise effects serious health conditions. Conclusions are profound: the current adages no longer apply. See it at a free screening on April 11 at the McMinnville Community Center.

The film follows a group of families battling to lead healthier lives and reveals why the conventional wisdom of “exercise and eat right” is not ringing true for millions of people struggling with diabetes, childhood obesity and other serious conditions.

Dinner will be provided, and a panel discussion will follow the screening. Prizes are up for grabs, too.

Come to the McMinnville Community Center, located at 600 NE Evans St, McMinnville, OR 97128, from 3:15-6pm The Student Nutrition and Activity Clinic for Kids (SNACK) program is the host for the event. Learn more about the SNACK program and how to get connected.
