  • Join us for a free public screening of this compelling documentary. This film shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and that it can 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. This viewing will be followed by a question and answer session with a panel of local persons who can speak to the issue of hunger and obesity in the Knoxville community.
