Piscataquis Regional Food Center has partnered with Center Theatre to bring the award-winning documentary, "Food for the Rest of Us," to the big screen in Dover-Foxcroft! The film will be available Monday, December 6th through Thursday, December 9th with showings at 12:30 and 7 pm. Tickets are $4 (with a special $2 Tuesday deal) and half of all ticket sales will be donated to PRFC.
According to the movie promo materials, "'Food for the Rest of Us' is a feature film that presents 4 stories of people living life on their own terms, serving as leaders who are lending their voice to the underdog and leading a revolution to a better world, from the ground up! An Indigenous-owned, youth-run organic farm in Hawaii, and Black urban grower in Kansas City who runs a land-farm at East High School, A female Kosher Butcher in Colorado working with the Queer Community and an Inuit community on the Arctic Coast who are adapting to climate change with a community garden in a small geodesic dome."

"By partnering, PRFC and Center Theatre can present an award-winning documentary that deals with issues of food production, availability, and equity - all issues that also affect our community," said Patrick Myers, Center Theatre Executive Director and PRFC Board President. "'Food for the Rest of Us' is about how the act of growing food can be a form of activism that can lead to change. One of the reasons I'm involved in PRFC is because PRFC supports local food infrastructure to make our whole community more resilient and more sustainable in the long-term."
PRFC is delighted to inspire food-based conversations in our community. Learn more and buy tickets in advance at http://www.centertheatre.org/.
