The Stratford Library will host "Food Stamped," an informative and humorous documentary film on Tuesday, March 5 at 7 p.m. The program is made possible by Connecticut Humanities www.cthumanities.org.
"Food Stamped" follows a couple as they attempt to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet on a food stamp budget. Through their adventures the couple consults with members of U.S. Congress, food justice organizations, nutrition experts and people living on food stamps to take a deeper look at America’s broken food system.
The film raises awareness about the food crisis in America and sparks discussion and conversation concerning local issues. A panel discussion about these issues will follow the film showing. It will be moderated by Brian Trent.
