Morgan Spurlock Receives 2008 Fred Rogers Integrity Award

Morgan Spurlock - the writer/producer/director and star of the Academy Award nominated film Super Size Me - was the recipient of the third Fred Rogers Integrity Award.  Super Size Me, ignited a national discussion about fast food and helped shine a spotlight on the food industry's nefarious marketing practices. The film, and Spurlock's follow-up Don't Eat This Book, have been instrumental in focusing attention on the childhood obesity epidemic and helping to mobilize parents, healthcare professionals, and politicians to advocate for restrictions on food marketing to children.  Spurlock was presented the award at the opening reception of CCFC's 6th Consuming Kids Summit.  Read the press release.
