Food Inc. on WILL-TV

Food, Inc. reveals surprising — and often shocking truths — about what we eat, how it's produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.

This Academy-Award nominated documentary will make its broadcast debut on the PBS series POV this coming Wednesday, April 21. Tune in to WILL-TV at 8:00 p.m. CDT on your local cable or broadcast channel.

Food, Inc. will be accompanied by Notes on Milk, a short documentary which highlights little known facts about a favorite American beverage.

Interested in learning more about the film? Watch the trailer. Or, visit the movie's official website or the PBS POV website.

If you can't catch the POV screening on TV, you have other options to watch this significant and unsettling documentary. View Food, Inc. in its entirety online with streaming video for a limited time--April 22 through April 29, 2010.

The Urbana Free Library owns four copies of Food, Inc. on DVD. Place a hold and we'll notify you as soon as the film is available for you to take home.
