In November 2007, the Vermont Campaign to End Childhood Hunger
(VTCECH) debuted a new documentary on hunger in Vermont and its myriad
solutions: Every Child. Every Day. On November 29th, the Main Street
Landing Performing Arts Center hosted the film's exciting premiere,
where over 200 community members and leaders from the business,
non-profit, and political sectors came together for the film's first
public showing. Debuting amid Thanksgiving and the winter holiday
season, Every Child. Every Day. poignantly reminds us of the
devastating effects of chronic hunger and malnutrition, featuring
anecdotes from real Vermonters. More importantly, it shows how the
comprehensive "safety net" of public health programs, nutrition
education, and emergency food services can put a stop to childhood
hunger in Vermont. Joanne Heidkamp from the VCTECH will show the movie
and lead short discussions after the film, as well as answer any
questions that people might have about the local non-profit and hunger
