A Place at the Table to Show Twice in New Mexico in Coming Week

Two congregations in New Mexico are showing the documentary A Place at the Table over the next week.  The documentary is an anchor for Bread for the World's 2013 Offering of Letters.

On Sunday, Sept. 1, Albuquerque Mennonite Church will show a segment of the movie to members of the congregation as part of its Adult Education series and its Offering of Letters. In addition to writing letters to Congress, participants will have the opportunity to sign a petition to President Obama (if they haven't already done so).  The petition asks the president to set a goal and work with Congress on a solid plan to end hunger. The goal is to to send at least 100,000 signatures to President Obama urging him to make this happen.

On Wednesday, Sept. 4, Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Santa Fe (107 W. Barcelona Rd.) is hosting a public screening of A Place at the Table at 6:00 p.m.. The screening, which will be shown at the congregation's Fogelson Hall, will be followed by a brief discusssion.  Sponsors are UUCSF Social Justice Team, Lutheran Advocacy Ministry-New Mexico (LAM-NM) and the Santa Fe chapter of RESULTS.  Admission is Free.

You can  also watch A Place at the Table in the comfort of your home. The documentary is available  (DVD rental, DVD purchase or streaming) on several popular media, including
Amazon. Netflix, VUDU, and I-Tunes.
