HMEG and Mississippi Market to screen the film "Lunch Line"

Join us for a screening of the film Lunch Line on Wednesday, March 9 at 6 p.m. at the Hamline-Midway Public Library, 1558 W. Minnehaha Ave.

Lunch Line ( portrays the story of six kids from a tough Chicago neighbor­hood working to fix school lunch. Their journey parallels the dramatic trans­formation of school lunch from a weak patchwork of local anti-hunger efforts to a robust national feeding program. Along the way, Senators, Secretaries of Agriculture, entrepreneurs, and activists from across the political spectrum add top-down perspective to a bottom-up film about the American political process, the health and welfare of its future, and the realities of feeding more than 31 million children a day.

This event is being sponsored by the Hamline-Midway Environmental Group and Mississippi Market Natural Foods Co-op. All are welcome to attend. If you plan to attend the film, please RSVP with the number attending to 651-690-0507 or to reserve your seat. There is limited space in the library auditorium. Mississippi Market will be serving organic popcorn!
