Stokes 102 - Humanities Center
Join us for a screening of "A Place at the Table", and a discussion about food insecurity in Philadelphia. This event is free and open to the public.
A Place at the Table, a film that examines hunger in America today, features the voices of the Director of the Center for Hunger-Free Communities, Dr. Mariana Chilton, and Barbie Izquierdo, of Witnesses to Hunger. Witnesses to Hunger is a research and advocacy project partnering with the real experts on hunger-- caregivers of young children who have experienced hunger and poverty. The film shows Barbie's struggles to feed her two children and the sacrifices she must make to keep food on the table. It highlights the Center's policy-relevant research of Children's HealthWatch as Dr. Chilton talks with families about hunger in the ER at St. Christopher's Hospital. In addition, the film features one of Witnesses to Hunger's greatest moments - 20 mothers showing their photos at an exhibit in the US Senate.
The screening will be preceeded by a conversation about food insecurity in Philadelphia with Witnesses to Hunger program participants and Center for Hunger-Free Communities staff.
A Haverford House program sponsored by the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship.
