Documentary on hunger to screen in Tacoma, Emergency Food Network to lead discussion


“A Place at the Table,” a powerful new documentary that investigates and proposes solutions to incidents of hunger experienced by millions of Americans, will be screening at The Grand Cinema from May 3-May 9, 2013.

Emergency Food Network and Immanuel Presbyterian Church are co-sponsoring a post-film discussion following the 4:20pm screening on Sunday May 5. The discussion will be led by Helen McGovern, Executive Director of Emergency Food Network, and will draw connections between the film and work being done to address hunger in Pierce County.

“The hunger-related challenges facing Tacoma/Pierce County are essentially the same as those being faced by communities all over the country,” says McGovern. “This film promises to invite audiences to join an important on-going conversation about local hunger and maximizing resources.”
