Film screening benefiting the Houston Food Bank and Food Not Bombs: A Place at the Table

eventdetail

Fifty million people in the U.S. — one in four children — don't know where their next meal is coming from. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling 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.

A Place at the Table shows how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for the 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 everyone.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Houston Food Bank and Food Not Bombs.
