A Place at the Table Documentary Screening
Hosted in partnership with  Twin Oaks Health
Thursday,  August 23 at 6:30PM – 7:30PM

Join the Cass Clay Hunger Coalition and partners for a screening of the documentary A Place At The Table on Sunday, September 9, at 2 p.m. at The Fargo Theatre. Join us after the film for a post-documentary social & panel discussion from 3:30-5 p.m. at the Broadway Garage (1 block north of the Fargo Theatre).

Both events are free and open to the public but pre-registration is requested. Please register via Eventbrite.

About the Film:
Fifty million people in the U.S.—one in four children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. A Place at the Table examines 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 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.

About the Post-Documentary Social & Panel:
Following the film join us for a social and continued conversation at the Broadway Garage (409 Broadway) with leaders in our hunger community to the discuss the film, local issues, and actions we can all take to address hunger. Panelists include Melissa Sobolik, Director of Ending Hunger 2.0 with the Great Plains Food Bank, Andrew Flory, Food Pantry Manager at the FM Dorothy Day House of Hospitality, Inc, and Stacie Loegering, Executive Director of the Emergency Food Pantry.

Complimentary snacks and beverages will be provided.
