GCI to show documentary on U.S. hunger

For Immediate Release: March 25, 2015

BLOOMSBURG— Bloomsburg University will screen “A Place at the Table,” a documentary film revealing hunger problems in the U.S. The film will be shown on Monday, March 30, at 7 p.m. in Carver Hall’s Kenneth S. Gross Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.

Fifty million U.S. citizens don’t know where their next meal is coming from, an issue caused not by food scarcity but by poverty. This poses economic, social and cultural implications for the nation. “A Place at the Table” tells the stories of people, young and old, struggling with food insecurity in the U.S. Through these stories coupled with insights from experts, teachers and activists, the film proposes that healthy food can be available and affordable to all citizens.

The film screening is sponsored by BU’s Green Campus Initiative.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 10,000 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
