Two Movies at Stratford Library This Week

'Food Stamped' on Tuesday, 'Hope Springs' on Friday

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.
