The film talks about hunger in America and the consequences of hunger in our society.
“Hunger and food insecurity receive too little discussion in our society. Before we can really address the problem of hunger in America, we all need to acknowledge it’s a problem. Saturday’s screening and discussion will increase awareness of this issue, how it impacts our community, and most importantly, what we can do to fix it,” said Congresswoman Capps.
Following the screening of the film, there will be a panel discussion about the impacts of the film as well as the actions being taken in Santa Barbara County to end hunger and improve access to healthy food, particularly for children.
Seats are first come first serve, and the screening is free.
