‘Food for Thought’ Films
As part of its week long ‘Food for Thought’ initiative, Greater Bennington Interfaith Community Services will show two highly acclaimed films with an opportunity for discussion following each showing. All members of the public are invited to participate and there is no admission fee. The films are ‘Harvest of Shame,’ an Edward R. Murrow piece that aired on CBS, Thanksgiving Day in 1960, which focuses on American itinerant farmers of the day, who, despite picking food for the nation, did not have enough to eat themselves. The second film ‘A Place at the Table,’ came out in 2013, and presents an updated view of hunger in America. Both films provide much food for thought.
Both films will be shown at 7 at the following Bennington, Vt. locations: Monday, October 21 at Congregation Beth El, 107 Adams Street; Tuesday, October 22, at Second Congregational Church, 115 Hillside Street; Wednesday, October 23, at the First Baptist Church, 601 Main Street; and Thursday, October 24, at the Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse, 108 School Street.
