On Wednesday, February 6, during the Cinema Green screening of the award-winning documentary “Ingredients”, ECOMB will have the honor to present a very special guest: Mr. Ben Cohen, co-founder of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream. Mr. Cohen will be joining ECOMB for the film, commentary and to share with our community about his experiences, and his latest projects.
Ben and Jerry's tremendous success is due in large part because of its unique company mission, their leadership through progressive values and to their community-conscious commitments to quality ingredients, economic justice, as well as environmental and social responsibility.
ECOMB strongly encourages advance ticket purchase. It will sell out!
About ‘Ingredients’ A Miami Premiere
As American food nears a state of crisis, Ingredients explores a thriving local food movement where community, food-safety and flavor are commonplace.
A feature-length documentary narrated by Bebe Neuwirth, the film takes us across the United States, from the urban food deserts of Harlem to the diversified farms of the Hudson River and Willamette Valleys to the kitchens of celebrated chefs Alice Waters, Peter Hoffman and Greg Higgins. Ingredients is a journey that reveals the people who are bringing good food back to the table, and the myriad ways we all can eat better.
Ingredients empowers and sparks the joy of discovery in creating a healthier, more sustainable model for living and eating well in a world in need of balance.
