Join us for a nutritious potluck & a new documentary that will transform your life and your health!  Sunday, July 14 from Noon to 4pm

At the heart of the story in this documentary, called “Secret Ingredients”, is Kathleen DiChiara and her family of five (pictured above) who were collectively struggling with 21 chronic diseases. (Click here to see the trailer.  From filmmakers Jeffrey Smith and Amy Hart.)

They were like many other families – despite living a healthy lifestyle and making a point to exercise and ‘eat right’ – they were constantly struggling with one condition after another. When Kathleen was faced with a severe health crisis, she became determined to figure out what was causing these conditions. Everything changed when she identified the secret ingredients that were keeping them a perpetual state of illness – and eliminated them from their kitchen. The results were dramatic. Kathleen’s experience is not uncommon. 

The film shares many powerful stories of people who regained their health after changing to an all organic diet, free of GMOs, Roundup and other toxic pesticides. There was a lot of excitement as skin and digestive conditions disappear; cancer patients now have a clean bill of health; autistic children are now thriving; infertile couples now have healthy babies. These experiences are backed up by physicians, scientists and experts who explain the science, and the political history of GMOs and Roundup.  

Bring your favorite, healthy potluck dish to share and
