Free Public Screening: "A Place at the Table" at Marjorie Luke Theater

The Orfalea foundation along with Share our Strength are sponsoring, A Place at the Table, a thought provoking documentary about the intersection of corporate food systems, public policy and hunger in America today.


Food Sovereignty week was created to increase public awareness about
Who decides what we eat. Additional events include an evening with noted author Janet Poppendieck as she discusses The Future of Hunger on September 12. The week concludes with the September 15 Foodbank of Santa Barbara County’s annual Table of Life Gala, supporting Feed the Future, a series of innovative programs that foster food literacy, nutritional health and independence in children of all ages.

    A reminder that there's a second hunger-related event at the Luke on Thursday.

    The film is worthwhile and the opportunity to volunteer was appreciated. I did not find the meetup group however. Maybe next time

      I didn't see any sort of MeetUp gathering either. It would have been nice to sit together.

    An outstanding film. I've been amazed at how much our food has changed in the last 50 years. And, because I had enough money to feed my kids, I paid little attention to how food distributions worked for others. It's going to be challenging to change the system of distribution in this country, but it deserves our energy and attention.

    The film was an eye-opener. Especially surprising to me was the percentage of children locally who are hungry on any given day. It's a disgrace to our nation and to the politicians who (supposedly) represent all of us, the hungry folks included, in Washington. I also was not aware how little food stamp recipients receive and what the cut-off income level is for a family to be eligible for food stamps.
