Film, discussion tonight designed to spark anti-hunger efforts in Idaho

The Idaho Hunger Relief Task Force and an array of other non-profit, anti-hunger and religious organizations are sponsoring a showing of the film “A Place at the Table” at the Egyptian Theater tonight, followed by a panel discussion and opportunities for attendees to get involved in fighting hunger and food insecurity in their communities. Kathy Gardner, task force director, said,To provide food security for all Idahoans and address issues of obesity and health, the focus must change. There are a lot of ways for people to get involved.”

Tickets for the 7 p.m. screening are $10 general or $7 for seniors or students; proceeds will benefit Fresh Fund, which provides low-income consumers with incentives that match the amount of food stamps they spend on healthy local foods at local farmers' markets. There’s more info here.
