Special Free Screening: A Place at the Table Documentary
Free Screening! A Place at the Table Documentary | September 18
Join us at the Marriott on September 18 at 7:00 pm for a special screening of the thought-provoking documentary about hunger, “A Place At The Table,” by the creators of Food, Inc. The event, on September 18 at 7:00 pm, is free and open and to the public. We’d love for you to come!
The film takes an eye-opening look at hunger and obesity in America, and tells the story of how we had these problems mostly solved before things took a turn for the worse in the ’70s and ’80s. Today, Arizona suffers from the highest rate of food insecurity in the country (29%) and national childhood obesity rates have tripled over the last 30 years, such that in 2010 more than 33% of children and adolescents were considered overweight or obese.
The film will be immediately followed by a panel discussion to discuss some of the key issues around hunger.
Tucson is one of only a handful of communities selected to air this film as part of a larger strategy by the filmmakers to build the food movement. It’s not just another film to watch and shrug off, it’s an opportunity to get involved in the fight to end hunger. Our event in Tucson is particularly exciting in that it will be the main public feature of a larger conference about hunger being hosted by the Community Food Bank.
This event is made possible by the Pima County Food Alliance. Learn More
