Dinner and a Movie to Fight Hunger
Monday, April 29, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CDT)
Nashville Food Bloggers invite you to Dinner and a Movie to Fight Hunger: A screening of “A Place at the Table" and Food Advocacy Fair hosted by Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, The Tennessean, Delvin Farms and Tech Works.
“A Place at the Table,” a documentary film by the people who brought us "Food, Inc.," follows three families struggling with food insecurity to show how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications.
We’ll take a look at the film, then attendees can check out a food advocacy fair to learn ways to get involved with the fight against food injustice and hunger locally with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, Community Food Advocates, the Society of St. Andrew, The Cookery, Hands on Nashville’s Urban Farm, The Nashville Food Project, Martha O'Bryan Center, The Nashville Mobile Market and Nashville Grown.
Dinner will be provided. Brett Swayn of The Cookery and his staff will create a dish featuring Delvin Farms produce. Swayn, a formerly homeless man who worked his way up the kitchen ranks at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse, recently created The Cookery, a catering cafe and culinary training center for men and women in transition.
Nancy Vienneau, restaurant reviewer for The Tennessean and a chef / teacher at Second Harvest Food Bank's Culinary Arts Center, and Anne Sale of The Nashville Food Project also will provide a dish.
Lisa Donovan of Buttermilk Road Sunday Suppers and pastry chef to the soon-to-open Husk Restaurant also will be baking loaves of her beautiful bread.
Find out more information on the food bloggers' participation in a national hunger project.
We expect the screening of this popular film to sell out. Please purchase your $12 ticket today to hold your spot. We look forward to seeing you!
