Friday, February 16, 2018 at 7 pm at Wingra School: “A Place At The Table” 

“Fifty million people in the United States—including one in five children—suffer from hunger and do not get enough to eat on a regular basis to be healthy and active. This film follows three families struggling with food insecurity and ultimately shows us how hunger and the resulting obesity pose serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and how food access issues could be solved once and for all.”  Moderator: Bonnie Block  (Film is from 2013 and lasts 84 minutes.)

Friday, March 16, 2018 at 7 pm at Wingra School: “ Trashed”

“Actor Jeremy Irons investigates the shocking global scale and devastating impact of humanity’s modern waste. Each year, we throw away fifty-eight billion disposable cups, billions of plastic bags, 200 billion liters of water bottles, billions of tons of household waste, toxic waste and e-waste. We buy it, we bury it, we burn it and then we ignore it. Does anyone think about what happens to all the trash we produce?” Moderator: Pati Chevis  (Film is from 2012 and lasts 98 minutes.)
