A Place at the Table

A Place at the Table

March 5, 6:30 p.m.
Free to UMN students, faculty and staff with ID.

Fifty million people in the U.S.—one in four children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling with food insecurity; ultimately showing that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.

Guest speaker Michael Chaney from Project Sweetie Pie in North Minneapolis will join us and there will also be an interactive art/advocacy project on hunger and cooking demonstrations. ´╗┐Refreshments available at 6:30 p.m. 


SFS'15 is brought to you by the Bell Museum of Natural History in partnership with the University of Minnesota's Institute on the Environment/Sustainability Studies Minor and University Dining Services.
