The Doylestown Food Co-op is partnering with the County Theater and the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance to present the movie Food Stamped. Please plan on joining us for this informative and humorous film following a couple as they attempt to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet on a food stamp budget.
In honor of the theme of our movie, we will be collecting non-perishable goods, preferably organic and/or locally sourced, for our local food pantry. Please purchase your tickets in advance. Tickets will also be available at the door and are $8 for Doylestown Food Co-op Members and $10 for everyone else, including County Theater Members. We have sold out in the past, so we advise advanced purchase.
The actual movie will not begin until 7:30, but from 7:00 on our sponsors and additonal information regarding the Co-op will be scrolling on "the big screen. There will be a panel discussion after the movie.
The Doylestown Food Co-op’s mission is to be a member-owned grocery store that provides convenient access to a variety of locally raised or produced foods and other products and to foster a healthy and economically viable environment for our farmers and our community. We are looking forward to opening our neighborhood grocery store at 29 W. State Street in Doylestown in December 2013!
Members of the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance – farmers, landowners, restaurateurs, educators, environmentalists and consumers – work together to foster and expand a comprehensive, local, sustainable food supply in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
