Hunger Week: Documentary Screening

 

 

Make sure you don’t miss out on the first event of Santa Clara’s Hunger Week. The viewing will be of “A Place at the Table,” a documentary that focuses on poverty, hunger, and under-nutrition in America.  Shockingly, there are “50 million people in the U.S.- one in four children- don’t know where their next meal is coming from, despite our having the means to provide nutritious, affordable food for all Americans.” This documentary will open your eyes to a growing problem in the United States that needs to be dealt with now.

When?

Monday May 20th  at 7:00pm

Where?

Kennedy Commons

Why?

This is a growing problem in our country and it needs people like you to solve it. This film is inspiring and has an interesting, eye-opening message.

It is also a way to get involved with SCU’s newest club BTGAP, Bridging the Gap to Alleviating Poverty. The club has a lot of opportunities available for its members, so get involved now!

Food?

If you’re not already convinced to come, there will be free snacks courtesy of BTGAP.

We hope to see you there! This is a great opportunity to learn more about current issues in the US, as well as get involved on campus in SCU’s newest club BTGAP! Make sure to spread the word about Hunger Week by adding #scuhungerweek2013 to your Instagrams/Twitter/Facebook images of the events!
