The Center for Student Leadership, Ethics, and Public Service’s Leaders for Change will be screening A Place at the Table Tuesday, November 29 in Talley 4101 at 4:30 p.m. The documentary examines issues of hunger in America through the lens of three families struggling with food insecurity, a small sample of some fifty million people in the United States who suffer from hunger and struggle to find a meal on a daily basis.
A Place at the Table shows how hunger and obesity pose serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation and how food access issues could be solved once and for all if the American public decides—as we have in the past—that making healthy food available and affordable is in all of our best interests. The intent of showing this documentary is to start an open discussion among students about food insecurity and how to implement change.
Additionally, CSLEPS will be hosting a canned food drive 11/28-12/5 to benefit the on-campus Feed the Pack pantry which is in great need of beverages, condiments, canned fruit, breakfast foods, snack items, grains, and personal hygiene (soap, shampoo, deodorant, etc.). Drop off locations are available in Talley Student Union lobby and CSLEPS office suite. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
