Life looks a little different at 6,000 feet, and food presents a particular challenge in Truckee, Tahoe, and the Sierra. Residents up against quite a lot, considering the harsh climate, cost of living, lack of access and food security, and tourist-based economy. But these mountainous challenges inspire them to get creative, innovative even, in developing unique, functional solutions.

Interested in learning more about how our neighbors up the hill are creating a sustainable food system? Representatives from Elevate Tahoe will give an introduction to the film as well as conducting a question and answer session after the screening. Make sure to come early, as seating in the Community Room is limited.
