I didn't jump to see Food, Inc. in theaters. Maybe it was a fear of feeling too guilty to ever eat a questionably-sourced steak again. Or a depression induced by montages of baby chick fluffballs crammed on a conveyor belt. But once it was available on DVD in November, I gave in—and was happy I did.
The film points fingers at the large agra-corporations monopolizing America's food supply, but does so in an informative, and not super-nauseating way. Don't get me wrong, the shots of ammonia-cleansed ground beef didn't make me feel warm and fuzzy inside, but the film provided a practical message for eaters and shined a light on the lesser-discussed food policy issues, like seed patents controlled by Monsanto or the "seed police."
We are giving away five (5) copies of Food, Inc. To enter, just answer the following question: With a growing awareness of food policy issues, what changes have you made to your diet (if any)?
