The Sustainability Institute at Molloy College is proud to announce and invite you to the next Sustainable Living Film Series screening on Thursday April 11, 2013. Vegan food, popcorn and socializing at 6:00. Film starts at 7:15. Running time: 84 minutes. Discussion following the film.
$5.00 per person suggested donation at the door. RSVP required.
This time out we'll be screening the recently released documentary film, A PLACE AT THE TABLE (http://www.takepart.com/place-at-the-table )
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.
Ultimately, 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.
The Sustainable Living Film Series is a documentary series presented by the Sustainability Institute at Molloy College that screens films with a focus on environmental protection and sustainability, and features a different organizational partner for each presentation. For this screening we are partnering with GRACE Communications Foundation (http://www.gracelinks.org/). GRACE builds partnerships and develops innovative media strategies that increase public awareness of the relationships among food, water and energy systems.
Seating is limited. PLEASE BE SURE TO RSVP at the Facebook page for this event (https://www.facebook.com/events/162432487246274/), by calling[masked] ext. 7562 or send an email to [masked]
