A Place at the Table
In an effort to engage Humboldt County in a conversation about food insecurity, Food for People, in partnership with the California Center for Rural Policy, invites the community to attend two free community screenings of A Place at the Table. This critically acclaimed documentary, which was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, and features Oscar award-winning actor and End Hunger Network founder Jeff Bridges, examines the crisis of food insecurity, hunger, obesity and food access in America and the policies that have perpetuated the problem. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. for a light meal and the film will begin at 5:30 p.m. The screening is free and will be immediately followed by a panel discussion of food insecurity in Humboldt County and what community members can do to help. Panelists will include local activists and community leaders. For more information contact Heidi McHugh at 445-3166 extension 308 or go to www.foodforpeople.org.
