The next chapter on America’s food crisis from the people that brought you “Food, Inc.” 1 in 4 kids don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Hunger is a growing epidemic in the US, and we can fix it.

Join us for a Meaningful Movies Olympia presentation of “A Place at the Table,” a powerful and empowering film that 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.

Jeff Bridges, Tom Colicchio star.

Special Guests: Panelists for this movie include: Michaela Winkley, currently school gardens coordinator at the Thurston County Food Bank, who will be managing the Lacey Food Bank when it opens; Melissa Davis, WSU SNAP (food stamps) Nutrition Education Coordinator, and coordinator of the Garfield Elementary School garden; and Mackenzie McCall, Kiwanis Foodbank Garden Farm Manager and Project Coordinator for the Farm Fresh Foods for Healthy Kids study here in Washington.
