Cincinnati resident Barb Kowalcyk, who is featured in the documentary, Food, Inc., will be at the University of Dayton on Friday, January 15, to discuss her involvement in the film. After her 2 1/2 year old child died from E. coli, Kowalcyk has since become a food safety advocate, fighting to give the USDA the power to shut down plants that repeatedly produce contaminated meats.
The pre-film discussion and reception will begin at 8 p.m. in ArtStreet Studio B. The film, directed by Robert Kenner, will immediately follow the discussion, starting at 9 p.m. Seating is limited, so be sure to get there early! This event, sponsored by ArtStreet, Film Dayton and the University of Dayton’s Initiative on Sustainability, Energy and the Environment, is free and open to the public.
ArtStreet is located on the 300 block of Kiefaber Street on the University of Dayton campus. For directions and parking information, visit http://artstreet.udayton.edu or call (937) 229-5101.
