Free movie & panel discussion on “Food”

“We are what we eat.”

It is a choice we make 3 times a day.

Yet, how much do we really know about what is in our food and how food gets from the farms to our mouths?

To shed light on these burning questions, ECO Club and Young NTUC are jointly organising a movie screening and panel discussion on the film, “Food, Inc”.

We are also honoured to have 2 guests to broaden our scope on food issues and take part in the subsequent discussion.
