This film 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.

Personal stories are interwoven with insights from experts, including sociologist Janet Poppendieck, author Raj Patel, and nutrition policy leader Marion Nestle; ordinary citizens like Pastor Bob Wilson and teachers Leslie Nichols and Odessa Cherry; and activists such as Witness to Hunger’s Mariana Chilton, Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio, and Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges.

After the film, discussion will be led by Elaine Archangelo, Director of Delaware Division of Health & Human Services and member of the Delaware Hunger Coalition.

This event will take place in the meeting room adjacent to Rodney Chapel. Free adjacent-lot parking is available. For more information, call 302-656-2721.
