Hunger in the Valley of Plenty: Film screening and discussion with the filmmaker
California's San Joaquin Valley is the country's most productive farm belt: its fertile orchards and fields generate most of the nation's fresh fruit and nuts. Yet for the people who work and live near these farms, access to healthy and fresh food can be a daily struggle.
Join special guests filmmaker Scott Anger and reporter Sasha Khokha for a screening of Hunger in the Valley of Plenty, produced by KQED and the Center for Investigative Reporting.
Scott Anger is a multimedia storyteller and entrepreneur. He is the founder and managing director of Pandau, an organization that celebrates food, urban farming and healthy environmental stewardship.
Sasha Khokha is KQED's Central Valley Bureau Chief. Based in Fresno, she covers a vast geographic beat, including the nation's most productive farm belt and some of California's poorest towns.
