Film screening explores food insecurity

March 7, 2014

A Place at the Table movie posterNIU graduate students in nutrition and dietetics will present the documentary “A Place at the Table” at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 19, in the Chandelier Room of Adams Hall.

The film screening and discussion afterward on national and local food insecurity are part of National Nutrition Month.

“A Place at the Table” shows “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.”

Audience members can enjoy a free popcorn bar with build-you-own popcorn toppings.

The event is sponsored by the NIU College of Health and Human Sciences and the School of Family, Consumer and Nutrition Sciences.
