Portland Showing of Documentary “A Place At the Table” Begins This Weekend

March 14, 2013 at 7:50 am Leave a comment

Bread for the World, Oregon Food Bank, Partners for a Hunger Free Oregon, and Farmers Ending Hunger have joined together to bring the documentary A Place at the Table to Portland for a limited engagement.

The film opens this Friday, March 15, at the Hollywood Theater and runs for one week. Advance tickets are available online.

This eye-opening documentary reveals the depth of hunger in America and the factors that drive it. We are pleased that the launch of A Place at the Table coincides with Bread for the World’s 2013 Offering of Letters. Together, they magnify our focus on ending hunger through changes in public policy.
After the 7:20 p.m. showing on opening night, Sharon Thornberry, community food programs advocate at Oregon Food Bank and a Bread for the World board member, will give a short presentation. A contributor to the documentary’s companion book, Sharon will sign copies, which will be available for purchase at an informal reception across the street at Magnolia’s Corner following the presentation.

We hope you can join us on opening night, or will have the opportunity to see the film while it is showing in Portland. If you are unable to see the film in the theater, it is available on iTunes and OnDemand. Please contact me for more information.
