Free Film Screening: The Starfish Throwers

This event has reached capacity, however, available seats will be released at 6:55 p.m. Please arrive early to guarantee a seat.

A five-star chef, a 12-year-old girl, and a retired school teacher -- seemingly world's apart -- discover how their individual efforts to feed the poor ignite a movement against hunger. This documentary tells tale of three remarkable individuals, who, despite constant reminders that hunger is far too big for one person to solve, persevere to see their impact ripple beyond their individual actions.

Deborah Arteaga, executive director of Tempe Community Action Agency, will lead a post-film discussion.

View the trailer and learn more about the film.
