Food for Thought Film Series

FREE screening Wednesday, November 16th doors open at 6:30pm with the film starting at 7pm at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre. Make sure you bring a fresh food donation to drop off with Backyard Harvest too!

A big thank you to our co-sponsors this month - University of Idaho Sustainability Center and Backyard Harvest. Join us for a FREE community screening of Starfish Throwers on Wednesday, November 16th at 7pm and don't forget to bring a fresh food donation! Backyard Harvest will collect donations prior to and following the film that will then be delivered to various food pantries in the area. 

Film Synopsis:

Worlds apart, a five-star chef, a twelve year-old girl, and a retired schoolteacher discover how their individual efforts to feed the poor ignite a movement in the fight against hunger.

Award-winning chef Narayanan Krishnan, fighting against the caste system in India, quits his job to begin a life of cooking and hand-delivering fresh meals to hundreds of people in his hometown. Katie Stagliano’s planting of a single cabbage seedling when she was nine years old blossoms into Katie’s Krops, a non-profit with 73 gardens dedicated to ending hunger. Retired middle school teacher Mr. Law battles personal health issues as he hand delivers more than a thousand sandwiches nightly to the hungry in Minneapolis.

This documentary tells the tale of these remarkable individuals and the unexpected challenges they face. Despite being constantly reminded that hunger is far too big for one person to solve, they persevere and see their impact ripple further than their individual actions.

In honor of the spirit of the film as well as WSU's Poverty Awareness Week we will also be hosting two Bulk Food Repackaging Parties. One at WSU in Pullman prior to the film screening and the second on Friday, November 18 from 6-8pm at the Co-op. Items packaged will include recipes and serving suggestions. All items packaged in Pullman will go to Whitman County food pantries and all items packaged in Moscow will go to Latah County food pantries.
