Food-focused movie with Elkhart tie to be screened at local church

Most people don’t often think about where their food comes from.

In the Midwest, most folks would assume they can look out their window and pick out the food they’ll find at the store. But in the 2015 film “From Fencerows to Foodsheds,” filmmaker Janet Katz alleges that reality doesn’t fit that narrative.

Katz claims that despite having 58,000 farms in Indiana, 90 percent of the food in the state is imported from somewhere else. In the film, Katz interviewed Elkhart farmer Kurt Bullard and draws on his year’s of experience.

Both Katz and Bullard will be on-hand for a free screening of the film from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20, at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Elkhart, 1732 Garden St., Elkhart.
