Tonight: Portola Valley shows documentary on feeding poor

 

"The Starfish Throwers," a documentary on the efforts of three volunteers to feed the poor and hungry, will be shown at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 19, at the Portola Valley Community Hall, 765 Portola Road.

The presentation is free and open to the public. Refreshments include coffee – you're supposed to bring your own cup – wine and snacks, including baked goods prepared and shared by some of the people in attendance.

The film locations are in India, South Carolina and Minneapolis. The volunteers are a five-star chef, a 12-year-old girl (who is now 17), and a retired school teacher.

"Despite being constantly reminded that hunger is far too big for one person to solve, they persevere and see their impact ripple further than their individual actions," the flier for the film says.
