One in four children in the United States do not know where their next meal is coming from.
Join us at the Hollywood Theater this week to watch "A Place at the Table," a film highlighting hunger through the stories of three Americans who struggle with food insecurity: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.
Connecting these powerful stories are comments from sociologist Janet Poppendieck, author Raj Patel, nutrition policy leader Marion Nestle, Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio and Oscar winning actor Jeff Bridges.
The Hollywood Theater will show this film through Thursday, March 28. Or, if you'd like, contact Jackie Papier at email@example.com to organize a showing in your community (for 10+ people)!
