“A Place at the Table” – Fall Schedule

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

View the documentary film “A Place at the Table” on the big screen:


“A Place at the Table”: Responding to Hunger

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

The documentary video “A Place at the Table” is now available for loan to local congregations and community groups as a discussion starter about hunger an public policy. (Contact Justice & Advocacy for details.)
For Lutheran Congregations, Lutheran Advocacy Ministry in Pennsylvania (LAMPa) has offered to come to any ELCA church in Pennsylvania to show the documentary and lead discussion. LAMPa is also working on expanding school breakfast and lunch programs in Pennsylvania.

You can also watch on-line (rent from iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, etc.)

Floor debate on the 2013 Farm Bill in the U.S. House of Representatives ended on June 20, and the bill as amended was defeated. There is little likelihood of a new Farm Bill this year, and probably the 2008 Farm Bill will be extended for yet another year, avoiding major cuts to the SNAP (“food stamps”), but also failing to enact various other reforms. (See Farm Bill update for details.)
