Let’s end hunger in America by screening ” A Place At the Table on 3/13 at 7 PM and learn how we can help stop this crisis. In the U.S. today, 50 million people and a staggering one in four children do not know where their next meal is coming from. Did you know that over 200,000 or 21% of Westchester residents are hungry or at risk of hunger?
- One-third are children under the age of 18 and more than half are seniors
- The new needy are also professionals laid off from jobs and those finding work at significantly lower salaries
A local community organization Bread of Life would like to raise awareness of this important issue and will host a viewing of the award winning documentary “A Place at the Table”. This documentary examines the issue of hunger in the United States by highlighting three Americans who struggle daily with food insecurity. The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion and question and answer session with experts from the Westchester Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry and the Westchester Food Bank.
This event will educate our community about hunger and the lack of food security in America. Participants will learn the facts and walk away with concrete things they can do to help alleviate the problem.
The program is free and no registration is required.
Date: Thursday March 13th at 7:00 pm
Location: Rye Free Reading Room
Founded by the Church of the Resurrection of Christ, a non-denominational church in Rye NY, Bread of Life began with one bagel shop owner who wanted to give something back so he gave bagels to the poor and the hungry. Now, the team partners with local businesses, churches and government agencies to serve as a bridge to unite supply and demand. Currently, they feed over 500 people daily through their on-site and mobile food pantry, supplying food to families and over 17 church and government food pantries and shelters throughout southern Westchester County. We send a special “shout-out” to the extraordinary founders of this life saving charity: Pastor Pasquale Falco, Pastor Sherri Falco and Susan Wexler.
So Let’s End Hunger in America by screening ” A Place At The Table” on March 13th at 7pm to learn how we can help local organizations with this important cause.
