Win Food, Inc. Goodies!

This Friday marks the Chicago opening of Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner’s hard look at the often shady business that goes on behind the rows upon rows of identical styrofoam-packed pork chops and chicken breasts. In conjunction with the film’s opening, we’re giving two lucky readers Food, Inc. gift packages: a two-book set made up of a copy of the documentary’s companion book (also titled Food, Inc.) and a copy of Eric Schlosser’s groundbreaking Fast Food Nation. To enter, we’re asking you to write a one paragraph defense of your favorite unabashedly processed food — the one product, preparation, or dish that you wouldn’t want to be without, even in a completely green and virtuous world. Email us your opus before 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 18, and we’ll announce the winners Friday morning.

Update: Gapers Block notes that the Midwest Independent Film Festival is hosting a free screening of Food, Inc. tonight — sign up online and get to the theater early, since they’re intentionally overbooking.

Check out the Food, Inc. trailer, after the jump.
