Yesterday, the library and Chipotle hosted a screening of the documentary film What’s On Your Plate?.  In the film, two friends investigate where the food they eat comes from. The answers aren’t always appetizing.  There are still places where you can find good, fresh food, such as local farmers markets.

About Donna B

Hi! My main hangout in the Library is the Teen Underground, but you'll find me wandering all over the building. Originally from Northeast Iowa, I've lived in the Chicago area long enough that people don't tell me I sound like a character from "Fargo" anymore. I geek out on ginger ale and black licorice, Pottermore sorted me into Slytherin, and if I were a dog I'd be a shiba inu.
