Film screening: ‘A Place at the Table’
ABOUT THE FILM: 50 million people in the U.S. – one in four children – don’t know where they will get their next meal. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine this issue through the lens of three people who are struggling with food insecurity. A Place at the Table shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and that it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides – as they have in the past – that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.
