Slow Food and Film

Tonight, up-Islanders can enjoy dinner and a movie without crossing the West Tisbury town line, as Slow Food Martha’s Vineyard is hosting a special event at the Chilmark Community Center at 6 p.m. Chefs Robert Lionette and Jan Burhman will prepare the meal; and after diners are sated, they can relax and watch a film about food. FRESH is a new documentary that uses personal stories of change to examine sustainable agriculture, and the individuals working toward reinventing the food system.

Tickets for both the dinner and movie will be available at the door; $20 for Slow Food members and $25 for nonmembers. For details, e-mail or
