THE STORY:

Join us in our second annual 24 hour fast to support the fight against hunger in Philadelphia! The fast will take place from Feb 16-17 and will end in a bake sale, FREE pizza party, and viewing of award-winning documentary A Place at the Table. 100% of donations will be given to the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger. Nearly $7000 was raised last year, and it went directly into healthy foods for local food pantries & soup kitchens. Remember, you can still donate even if you cannot participate in the fast.

A million thank yous for your support and donation!

“50 Million Americans—1 in 4 children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. A Place at the Table tells the powerful stories of three such 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.”

Come watch this riveting movie with members of all of Jefferson’s communities, as the Gold Humanism Honor Society participates in Solidarity Week. Solidarity Week was created to promote the simple yet sometimes difficult to achieve ideal of kindness towards patients and all members of the medical team. Three Jefferson student organizations will be selling baked goods beforehand so come early to get a treat for the show! Watch the trailer here:  http://www.magpictures.com/aplaceatthetable/
