“A Place at the Table”: Film on Hunger in the U.S. - Nov. 2

Please join us for a Showing of the Movie

“A Place at the Table”
Starring Jeff Bridges!

50 Million Americans—1 in 4 children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. A Place at the Table tells the powerful stories of three such Americans, who maintain their dignity even as they struggle just to eat. In a riveting journey that will change forever how you think about the hungry, A Place at the Table shows how the issue could be solved forever, once the American public decides—as they have in the past—that ending hunger is in the best interests of us all.
