Film Screening: A Place at the Table

Time: 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM (doors open at 5:45 PM)
Location: PC Theater

“50 million Americans – 1 in 4 children – don’t know where their next meal is coming from. A Place at the Table tells the powerful stories of three such Americans, who maintain their dignity even as they struggle to eat. In a riveting journey that will change forever how you think about the hungry, A Place at the Table shows how the issue of hunger could be solved forever, once the American public decides – as they have in the past – that it is in the best interests of us all.” Join Students Against Food Insecurity for this powerful film screening and bring a donation for the UCSD Food Pantry.
