Transition Honesdale offers film on hunger


WAYNE COUNTY, PA — Transition Honesdale will conclude its winter film series this April with two screenings of the documentary “A Place at the Table” in Honesdale and Beach Lake. This film brings to the fore the issue of hunger in our country, where over 50 million Americans and more than one in four children don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

“A Place at the Table” tells the powerful stories of three American families who manage to maintain their dignity even as they struggle just to put food on their tables. Actor Jeff Bridges acts as one of the spokespersons in this documentary, which addresses solutions to the challenging issues it highlights.

The film will be shown in Honesdale at the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce community room on Wednesday, April 23 at 7 p.m. and at the Beach Lake United Methodist Church on Wednesday, April 30 at 7 p.m. Both screenings are free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served. A discussion will follow the film screening at both locations, and participants can explore how to address the issue of hunger in our own communities.
