A Place at the Table, Tuesday March 10

Come pull up a chair and find "A Place at the Table" on Tuesday, March 10 when we will be showing the documentary of the same name at the Visalia Branch Library at 6:00pm. This event is free, and everyone is welcome to attend.

Synopsis: The critically acclaimed documentary A Place at the Table, directed by Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush, examines the connections between food access, food security, hunger and obesity.

The Take Your Place Social Action Campaign brings together, a consortium of leading nonprofit organizations, experts, companies and engaged community members who are concerned about the high level of food insecurity and obesity in our country. It’s designed to spur conversation and generate solutions to address our nation’s crisis of hunger and obesity.

This program is part of the ongoing Stretching the Food Dollar project at the library. The series of programs is supported by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian, in partnership with the UC Co-Op Extension.  

For more information on the showing of "A Place at the Table," or other Stretching the Food Dollar programs, call the Visalia Reference Desk at (559) 713-2703.
