Memorial hosts screening of the documentary film “PlantPure Nation,” Dec. 9

A new grass-roots movement has a goal nothing short of a world filled with healthy people and strong communities by promoting the importance of plant-based nutrition.

The new film “PlantPure Nation” tells the story of three people on a quest to spread the message of one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time. And Memorial Family of Services, the Yakima Food Cooperative and Vegetarians of Yakima would like to share that message with the public at a free screening of the movie on Wednesday, Dec. 9.

A movement toward a vegetarian diet must grow from the grass-roots, the food documentary says.

“PlantPure Nation” makes a case for not relying on the medical establishment or the government to spread the word about the evidence that eating whole, plant-based food is the key to good health. Instead it’s up to those of us who know the benefits of vegetarian food to start a nationwide health revolution.

The film stars renowned Cornell University biochemist T. Colin Campbell and his oldest son, Nelson Campbell.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. There will be two showings, 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., at the Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital auditorium, 2811 Tieton Drive.
