Hungry to Learn + Panel

Posted on

As part of CSU’s Diversity Symposium, ACT Human Rights Film Festival is proud to present a free encore screening of 2020 ACT festival film Hungry to Learn from Oct. 25-Nov. 7, 2021. Hungry to Learn will be available to watch at home, and a panel of CSU staff and students will discuss CSU’s initiatives to combat food insecurity on campus.

The 2021 Diversity Symposium will be held virtually this year and is free and open to campus and community members who register.
About the film: Hungry To Learn introduces the faces behind an American crisis – college students so strapped to pay tuition that they don’t have enough money to eat or a place to live. A lack of food is just a symptom of a bigger problem – the American Dream of a college education slipping out of reach. This documentary is not just about the devastating hunger crisis unfolding on American campuses, it is about what can – and should – be done about it.
