Learn more about hunger through the eyes of three families across the nation on Sept. 12 during a FREE screening of A Place at the Table. Produced by the creators of Food, Inc., A Place at the Table tells the powerful stories of three American families who face hunger in a nation with more than enough food. Their voices are set alongside those of policy experts and anti-hunger advocates who present a compelling case that hunger in our communities is a solvable problem. Following the screening, Atlanta Community Food Bank will host an informal discussion encouraging audience participation, with a focus on taking action through education and advocacy. The non-profit hopes the film and the discussion afterward will provide attendees with a place to begin, or continue, addressing the issue of hunger in the community. **Guests are encouraged to donate canned goods during the event. ACFB’s most needed items include peanut butter, canned tuna, canned beans and canned soup, as well as canned fruits and vegetables.**
