SU Ag Center participates in hunger discussion panel in observance of Food Day

Franklin on A Place at the Table panel 
Baton Rouge, La - Mrs. Tiffany Franklin, extension associate, attended the screening of “A Place at the Table" and participated in a panel discussion, sharing her professional knowledge about the topics discussed.  The Southern University Agricultural Center is proud and honored to have Franklin represent the organization. 

In celebration of Food Day 2013, and in collaboration with the Mayor's Healthy City Initiative, Baton Rouge held a film screening, panel discussion, Q&A and expo on October 22 at LSU’s Energy, Coast and Environmental Building. Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. A Place at the Table is a film that tells the powerful stories of three children that don’t know where their next meal is coming from; Americans, who maintain their dignity even as they struggle just to eat. In a riveting journey that will change forever how you think about the hungry, A Place at the Table shows how the issue could be solved forever, once the American public decides—as they have in the past—that ending hunger is in the best interests of us all. More information about “A Place at the Table” is available at Magnolia Picture.
