The Film Leftovers

In celebration of Older Americans Month
Bristol Elder Services, Inc.
presents a screening and discussion of the documentary

“LEFTOVERS”

Light supper will be served

RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED! RSVP by May 9, 2018 by calling 508-675-2105

About the film:

The film maker, Seth Hancock, was asked to make a documentary on a subject that meant nothing to him, senior citizens and hunger. He had never gone hungry a day in his life and rarely thought about getting old. In “Leftovers” he travels the country to discover why seniors are the new face of hunger in America, why they are often treated as second-class citizens and what is being done to make a difference in their lives. “Leftovers” is his personal journey, one where he quickly realizes how vast the problem is, what it will take to feed the seniors of this country, how much food gets wasted, and how senior hunger will affect us all. This journey will change your thinking about aging.
