  • The Starfish Throwers Screening

    San Francisco Jewish Film Festival
    Friday, July 25, 2014

    The Starfish Throwers is the story of three individuals working to make a difference in the lives of others, to work toward ending hunger in their communities—people who started with small acts of kindness that rippled into ever-widening positive change. 

    Following the screening a Food Bank representative will speak on a panel discussion about how our work relates to the film with a clear call to action for how audience members could get involved locally.
