   Showing of "Every Child. Everyone Day"

   12pm Today in Spruce Room NOTE LOCATION CHANGE ***


   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  
in Vermont.
