About 160 people, including members of the greater Worcester community and Holy Cross students, attended a screening of the award-winning film “Soul Food Junkies” by documentary filmmaker Byron Hurt, above, in the Hogan Campus Center Ballroom. Before the screening, 110 people attended a healthy soul food luncheon, created by Boston chef Presceia Cooper and Holy Cross chef Edward Rome.
The film was followed by a panel discussion about healthy eating and food disparities. The panel consisted of, from left, Derek Brindisi, director of public health for the city of Worcester; Sean Harris, adjunct professor of design at Becker College; Hurt; Marie Boone, cofounder and executive vice president of planning at the Mosaic Cultural Complex; and Sharon Henderson, director of marketing and communications for the YMCA of Central Massachusetts.
