OSSINING, N.Y. -- The Ossining Library's Documentary & Discussion Series at the Budarz Theatre will feature a screening of "Fed-Up" on Thursday, Jan. 21.

Panelists include Laurie Gershgorn, proprietor, Healthy Culinary Creations; Susan Rubin, Filmmaker, Health Professional/Educator, Master Composter, Enviro-Activist; Lisa Rudley, executive director and co-founder, NYS Allies for Public Education and Parent Representative, OUFSD Wellness & Communications Committee' and Gina DeVito, assistant director of Wellness Initiatives, Open Door Family Medical Centers
