Approximately 5,000 kids in Indianapolis alone show signs of malnourishment. In 2012, 49.0 million Americans lived in food insecure households, including 15.9 million children. As a community, we can solve these problems.

You’re invited to the Indianapolis Worker Justice Center for a screening of Urban Roots on Tuesday, April 8, hosted by iImpact #CulturalCollective.

Tues., April 8. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Film starts at 7:00 p.m.

Where: the Worker Justice Center, 1734 W Washington St.

Short discussion panel with leaders in the Indianapolis food movement (Indy Hunger Network et.al.) immediately following the film.
Food deserts in lower-income neighborhoods make access to fresh fruits and vegetables very limited to families who live in these neighborhoods.

But there is hope: with the growth of community garden efforts, programs like IU Health’s Garden on the Go, urban farms, and the Indy Food Council, Indianapolis is making strides to increase access to fresh, healthy food for all people.

Urban Roots tells the story of urban farming in Detroit. Following the film, we will have representatives from Indianapolis’s local food and food justice communities discuss some of their efforts to solve food insecurity and malnutrition.

Snacks, community, and a short panel discussion to follow the film.

  • Amy Matthews, farmer, South Circle Farm
  • Maggie Goeglein, director, Fall Creek Gardens
  • Elise Springel, AmeriCorps VISTA in charge of Fresh Bucks program, Indy Hunger Network
