SustainFloyd to Screen Life-Changing Movie, “Forks Over Knives” on Saturday, February 25th

Floyd, Virginia – SustainFloyd will show the provocative documentary “Forks Over Knives” at 7 p.m., Saturday, February 25th at the Floyd Country Store.  The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and for the first time, there will be a fresh, hot soup bar offered for donations.   The evening is sponsored by Liz Stucki of Floyd, in appreciation of the importance of diet to a healthy lifestyle.  Everyone is invited and admission is $5.  “Forks Over Knives” dramatically makes the connection between health and nutrition to control or even reverse many of the degenerative diseases that afflict us, such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease.  Many who have watched this film say it has changed their lives.

“This is a fascinating movie, which we hope will start a good discussion about healthy eating,” says SustainFloyd Director Mike Burton.
All are invited to this community screening, the latest documentary in SustainFloyd’s popular 2012 Winter Film Series.  A distinguished panel will take questions after the film.  Speakers will include Dr. David Lander, MD, who is board certified in internal and emergency medicine and practices in Blacksburg, VA; Katherine Chantal, Herbalist and a manager of the Harvest Moon Food Store in Floyd; and Jason Redinbo, Clinical Director of The Blue Ridge Center for Chinese Medicine in Floyd.

The next documentary in the popular 2012 SF Winter Film Series will be “Mother Nature’s Child” at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 24th at the Floyd Country Store.  During an era when our children spend much of their lives inside, this film looks at the importance of the outdoors and a child’s relationship with the natural world.
