Free student access for HUNGRY TO LEARN & Panel Discussion on Food Insecurity in New Jersey

Posted in: College News and Events

HUNGRY TO LEARN, a documentary about hunger on college campuses, will be screened as part of the 2020 Montclair Film Festival Virtual Cinema program. The film features students from two schools, one of which is Montclair State University, and is co-presented at the Festival by Partners for Health Foundation (PFH).

PFH is also co-presenting a panel discussion on food insecurity and advocacy efforts to address hunger in New Jersey. The conversation is moderated by John Mooney, Founding Editor and Executive Director of NJ Spotlight News, and includes three panelists:

  • Anne Mernin, Executive Director of Toni’s Kitchen, a local provider
  • Adele LaTourette, Director of the NJ Anti-Hunger Coalition, a statewide advocate
  • Elisa Neira, Deputy Commissioner of the NJ Department of Human Services, who addresses the State’s efforts to help college students and how it has expanded access to SNAP
