American Meat

Bon Appétit has many great initiatives in place to help with sustainable practices while providing the best food possible.  Some of these include reducing the use of nontherapeutic antibiotics in animals, using cage-free shell eggs, along with many others. Because of their commitment to improving animal welfare, Bon Appétit Management Company is sponsoring screenings of American Meat in ten different states in order to evaluate the current state of US agriculture. One current struggle that many small farmers are facing is that the only way they can compete with the prices of large-scale farmers, is by using antibiotics for increased growth promotion. Not only does the film evaluate the current state, but it also offers motivation and ways to change and head back into the right direction for farming and sustainable agriculture. If you want to check out the screening that is offered here at CWRU, Bon Appétit is holding an event on March 5.  There will be a local food reception at 5:30pm, followed by the movie screening at 6:30om with a panel discussion at 8pm including Mary Holmes, Chef Doug Katz, and other prominent “foodies”.  The event will be held in Strosacker Auditorium.
