Looking for a great Sunday Event…

Sunday, January 19, 1 p.m. Cornwall Public Library “Dirt, The Movie” will be presented as part of Transition Cornwall + Food Action Group Food Film Series in partnership with the Cornwall Public Library. From January through to April, many food and agricultural issues will be explored in four exciting new documentaries, highlighting progress in reclaiming our food systems and making them safe, fair, ecologically sound and sustainable.

Dirt! The Movie introduces viewers to dirt’s fascinating history. Four billion years of evolution have created the dirt that recycles our water, gives us food, provides us shelter, and that can be used as a source of medicine, beauty and culture. It’s time to learn more about the dirt that our very survival depends on!

The Sunday afternoon event includes a warming cup of soup, the screening, and a post-film discussion. Soup’s on for 1 pm, followed by the movie. Admission is free (donations welcome, as are Agape food donations).

Record Low Attendance at Cornwall Soup Kitchen ! The number of clients at the Agape soup kitchen on statutory holidays Boxing Day and New Year’s Day was down. The total was less than the number that typically attend during an average day! One hopes that the clients were warmly welcomed to celebrate the festive season with family and friends. It would be heart warming to observe this trend in 2014 so there would be fewer lonely and hungry in our society.
