Five Thing: Ward 3 ResiStat Meeting, 'Shift Change' Film Screening
Also, it's National Food Day, and a Somerville resident was in a money-related play.
1) National Food Day
Today is National Food Day, which celebrates "healthy, affordable, and sustainable food," according to the initiative's website. One local organization participating in the celebration is Community Servings, which provides meals to individuals and families who are critically or chronically ill.
2) Ward 3 ResiStat meeting
Residents of Ward 3, which includes part of Union Square, Spring Hill, Prospect Hill and Central Hill, can learn about what's happening in the neighborhood at tonight's Ward 3 ResiStat neighborhood meeting. It begins at 7 p.m. at Somerville High School.
3) "Shift Change" screening
"Shift Change" is a new documentary about worker cooperatives. The film's website offers this description: "At a time when many are disillusioned with big banks and big business, and growing inequity in our country, employee ownership offers a real solution for workers and communities." One of the communities featured in the film is right here in Massachusetts. The screening is at 7 p.m. at Tufts University. Afterward there will be a discussion with the filmmakers.
4) "Money Matters"
Somerville resident Sophia Shrand played the Tooth Fairy in a Cambridge production of "Money Matters," which helps teach young people about financial issues and is collaboratively produced by the Central Square Theater's Youth Underground and Cambridge Savings Bank, according to an announcement sent on behalf of the play's producers.
Today will be party sunny with a high around 60.
