Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 3:34pm

An Academy Award winning actor who lives on the South Coast, and a local congresswoman are teaming up to shine a spotlight on America’s hunger crisis.

This coming weekend, Jeff Bridges and Democratic Congresswoman Lois Capps of Santa Barbara will co-host the screening of a new documentary “A Place At The Table” on the hunger issue, and then take part in a free panel discussion afterwards.

Bridges is the national spokesperson for the No Kid Hungry campaign, which tries to help kids through school nutrition, summer meal programs, and food education efforts aimed at families.

The free event will take place from 6-8 p.m. this coming Saturday, at the Antioch University campus in downtown Santa Barbara.
