The planned Feb. 13 screening and discussion of the documentary about hunger in the United States, A Place at the Table, has been rescheduled. The film and discussion will take place at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24, at the United Methodist Church in Peekskill.
Fifty million people in the U.S. — one in four children — don’t know where their next meal is coming from. The film’s directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling with food insecurity. A Place at the Table shows how hunger poses economic, social and cultural questions and suggests these could be resolved once and for all, if the American public decides that making healthy food available and affordable is in the nation’s best interest.
There will be dessert and a post-film discussion with representatives from the Peekskill Area Pastors Association (PAPA), Fred’s Pantry and County Harvest. The event is free and open to the public.
The United Methodist Church is located at 1040 Main St., Peekskill. PAPA represents a wide variety of houses of worship in the Putnam and Northern Westchester area.
