“Starved: Our Food Insecurity Crisis”
Friday, March 12 at 3:00 p.m. CST

Hosted by the Sisters of St. Francis, Clinton, Iowa, participants will watch a 30-minute film together via Zoom and then engage in a group discussion.

More than a million people in Pennsylvania are hungry because they cannot afford or do not have access to healthy food. For some, food insecurity is a matter of financial need. But often, entire communities are cut off from proper nutrition because there are no grocery stores nearby. These so-called “food deserts” are not the only challenge. Some neighborhoods have turned into “food swamps” – places dominated by fast-food restaurants. Further, isolation as a result of the coronavirus pandemic has made matters worse. This documentary examines food insecurity—as a societal problem, identifying the causes and exploring the many ways in which the government, non-profits, farmers, and individuals are working to bring nutritious meals to the tables of those who need them.
