The Jewish Federation of Springfield, Ill., in partnership with Bread for the World, the Central Illinois Food Bank, Douglas Avenue United Methodist Church, Abraham Lincoln Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Springfield, Ill. and Slow Food present A Place at the Table, a new documentary from Participant Media, which highlights the stories of a few of the 50 million people in the United States who are food insecure—they don't know where their next meal is coming from. Why are 50 million Americans faced with having to go hungry, when our country has the ability to provide enough food for all its citizens?
Join us to hear from area experts about how we can make a difference in our community and to view the documentary film. Sunday, Oct. 27 from 2-3:30 p.m. (with an optional Q & A until 4 p.m.) at Douglas Avenue United Methodist Church, 501 S. Douglas Avenue. Free of charge and open to the public.
For questions, please call the Jewish Federation of Springfield, Illinois at 727-7223, extension 11.
