“A Place at the Table” (from the makers of “Food, Inc.”) focuses on the issue of how 49 million people in the U.S.—one in four children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from, despite our having the means to provide nutritious, affordable food for all Americans. The film examines this issue through the lens of three people for who are struggling with food insecurity, along with insights from experts including sociologists, nutrition policy leaders, ordinary citizens, teachers, and important food activists.

A Place at the Table 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.

After the film from 5:30-7, viewers are encouraged to attend our Action Fair, which will contain booths highlighting the various groups on campus that are working on issues related to food insecurity, social inequity and justice.

FREE SUSTAINABLE DINNER will be served at the event – with generous thanks to the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association, Cafe Azafran, Zia’s Catering, and The Wild Pea Hummus.

All students, faculty, staff, and community members are invited to attend.

This event is being co-sponsored by Real Food Hopkins, Health Leads, JHU Healthy Community Initiative and the Center for a Livable Future
