"A Place at the Table" at Oak View Library October 5th
In an effort to engage our community in a conversation about hunger, obesity, food insecurity, and the reforms needed to address the problem, the Book to Action group of the Oak View Library is inviting local residents to take their place in the fight to end hunger and ensure that all children and families have access to healthy, affordable foods.
The critically acclaimed documentary A Place at the Table, directed by Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush, examines the crisis of food security, hunger, obesity and food access. The film will be screened at 6pm at the Oak View Park and Resource Center.
A pre-screening reception begins at 5:30pm with refreshments. Admission is free; however, any donation of nutritious, non-perishable boxed or canned food will be gladly accepted.
“This screening is a great opportunity to bring the community together to discuss what’s behind this food crisis and what might be done to address it,” said Oak View Librarian Sharon Dykstra, “Our library’s Book to Action group, after viewing the documentary and reading its companion book, thought a community screening would be the best way to share their newfound knowledge and also use this opportunity to raise food donations, as well.”
Interested in attending the screening? Please RSVP to the library by calling 649-1523.
