HUNGER AWARENESS NIGHT
The public is invited to meet guests from Feeding South Florida and the Kosher Food Bank at this year’s festival of Sukkot, Feast of Booths, at 7 p.m. Oct. 14 at Bet Shira Congregation, 7500 SW 120th St. The mission of this special evening is to spread awareness about the blessing of food and the good deed of helping feed others less fortunate.
Admission is free. Just bring a non-perishable food item as a donation to the food banks.
Also scheduled for the evening is a screening of A Place at the Table, the award-winning documentary that tells the stories of three Americans struggling to find food for themselves and their children. According to the film, 50 million people — one in four children — don’t know where their next meal will come from.
Organizers of the Bet Shira event hope to spread awareness about hunger and the fragility of life and the earth. To learn more visithttp://www.takepart.com/place-at-the-table,http://dev.feedingsouthflorida.org/, and http://jcsfl.org/programs/kosher-food-bank/
