Joan Crawford filmed several public service ads to promote American grocery stores, but you can't miss the product placement for the company for whom she was really shilling. This nostalgic 1965 advertisement is a reminder that we need to take charge of our own eating and food choices. Unless you'd prefer Joan to do all of your shopping for you. Which I kind of would.
Our Chef Shellie brings great information and tasty sampling to our cooking event this Saturday.

Colorado has some pretty amazing local authors and we're proud to share them with you. Join us this week to hear excerpts of their writing and participate in lively discussions.
Local favorite, Wayne Omura, will discuss his latest book, Zen Foot-Notes: Upon the Unknown Passage. It's a "metaphysical-mystical mountain climbing adventure symbolic of our journey through life." Join us Wednesday, July 24 at 6 p.m. at the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch.
Starting on Saturday, July 13, Chef Shellie Kark is going to get us all sorted out with her three-part series titled United State of Food. After this series, you'll be a confident food consumer making great choices for healthy eating.
COOKING DEMOS: UNITED STATE OF FOOD
Workshops, cooking demos and films centered on food culture, food politics, wellness and how to find the best, healthiest food to eat. These three cooking demos (two in July and one in August) will be our last cooking demos for 2013 – and they’ll be fun, educational and tasty. Sponsored by Whole Foods Market. Here’s to eating and living better in Denver!
Come rain or shine -- Fresh City Life is hosting our first outdoor movie tonight. We're featuring Pixar's new classic UP.
Bring a blanket or your favorite camp chair, and we'll have extra chairs, too, so you can travel light. Judith, from our film series committee, will be on hand to sell some cooling beverages and snacks.
It will be a fun, experimental event. And not to worry, if the weather becomes too threatening, we're all set to move into the basement for the evening. Showtime is dusk (about 8:45p) and we look forward to seeing you for this great flick.
Denver Public Library is the coolest place to be on a hot summer day. We're turning down the lights and serving up a film treat for the whole family. Join us for a large screen presentation of Pixar's modern fairytale, Wall-E.
With beautiful animation and grown-up themes of consumerism, mass consumption and unrequited love, WALL-E is entertaining for the most discerning film enthusiast while at the same time capturing the imagination of kids. It's a visual delight.
This film is being shown in conjunction with our morning cooking demo series United State of Food, which centers on food supply education. Come to both events or just cruise in for the movie.
Join Fresh City Life for our first ever outdoor film presentation. We'll have some chairs waiting for you, but you can bring a favorite blanket or pillow to sit on. Bring the whole family, too; Up is a great film for all ages.
We'll have some iced beverages and snacks for you -- so bring a little walking around money. Then kick back and enjoy the novelty of a film presented on the side of your Central Library. Free and open to the public.
Friday, July 12,8:30-10:30 p.m.
Central Library, Acoma Plaza
Our favorite Chef, Shellie Kark, of KitchenCUE, will talk about the up-to-the-minute news about your food supply and share tips for making the best choices for healthy eating.
We are leaving out talk of table manners and etiquette, in this three-part series about rolling up your sleeves, tucking in your napkin and taking your food supply into your own hands. You can stop being spoon fed information that someone else chooses for you to consume -- and educate yourself on what is coming to your table. Chef Shellie will help. We're also giving away a set of lunch boxes from The Container Store to one registered audience member!
