Film Screening: Abundance
A film about the remarkable Farmlink project
Introduction before film and Q+A following, with the film’s director Owen Dubeck and Farmlink’s Director of Sustainability, Julia DeSantis.
During the Covid epidemic and the resulting largest food crisis in a century, as food bank lines grew across the country, a group of college students stepped up to try to figure out how to help those facing hunger in their community. Their very successful small local effort inspired and motivated 600+ students from around the country to drop everything and work in remarkably creative ways to mobilize a national effort to feed millions of families and combat food waste. Within months, the project scaled up far more than anyone could have imagined, and these student activists now find themselves on the front lines of finding long-term solutions to eliminating waste in the food system and fighting hunger nationally and globally.
