"A Place at the Table"

Content

Get ready for Feast Portland and support Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon with a special screening of one of this year's most moving films - A PLACE AT THE TABLE !

A Place At The Table shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and that it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides - as they have in the past - that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all. This powerful documentary sheds light on the issue by weaving interviews with experts and advocate such as Jeff Bridges and chef Tom Colicchio with the intimate portraits of three people struggling with food insecurity. "The film explains with devastating simplicity why so many go hungry in a country with more than enough food to go round." - London Evening Standard

Come early to grab classic McMenamins food and drink. Stay for a conversation following the film to learn more about what's happening in Oregon to solve the hunger crisis and how you can get involved.

Proceeds benefit the work of Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon

About:

Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon is a non-profit that believes ending hunger is possible, and has a plan.

We envision an Oregon where everyone is healthy and thriving, with access to affordable, nutritious and culturally appropriate food. To bring that vision into reality we raise awareness about hunger, connect people to nutrition programs, and advocate for systemic changes that end hunger before it begins.

... The Assembly

The Mission Theater – the place that first put beers into the hands of Portland theater-goers so many years ago – has proudly introduced a new line of programming, dubbed “The Assembly.”

While retaining its relaxed environment, comfortable seating and matchless sightlines, the Mission is dropping its second-run movies, stepping up its food and beverage offerings, and – best of all – evolving the theater’s programming dramatically. The core of The Assembly features film screenings with related lectures, interviews, and performances that bring cinema to life. And fans of Mortified, Miz Kitty and live music will be happy to learn that many of the live performances that we've all loved over the years will continue. After all, The Assembly's primary mission – engaging audiences with events that are both enriching and entertaining – has few boundaries! 

So get your curiosity on and gather with us at The Assembly. There's a lot of world out there.
