Leftovers: A documentary on Food Insecurity

This week, over Twitter, I found out about a new documentary focused on Senior Hunger.  The documentary is titled:  Leftovers and is a film by Seth Hancock.  Here is the trailer:

Seth’s group has done an amazing job bringing to light a topic that is important for all of us to think about.  Many people don’t realize that older adult hunger or food insecurity affect 8.2 million seniors EVERY DAY!  In the nutrition world, we are working hard to figure out ways to bring this number down.  However, as you may imagine, there isn’t one single answer.

I emailed Seth to inquire about a showing of the film here on campus.  I thought it would be a nice way to raise awareness about the subject in the college-age crowd.  I was saddened when Seth wrote back that he was lacking funding to finish the film.  If you are interested in helping Seth, please donate here.
