Vintage Movie Night with Richard Hall: Films About Food and Nutrition
April 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
From the “Basic Seven Food Groups” of the 1940s & 1950s (one of them was butter!) to the more recent “Basic Four,” see how our ideas and official guidelines about food and nutrition have evolved in sometimes hilarious ways. Local filmmaker Richard Hall presents a selection of vintage classroom and industrial films about food and nutrition.
