DDB Fundraiser – Midtown Cinema

You are invited to a private showing of the movie “Wasted! The Story of Food Waste,” produced by celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, who aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Learn how Bourdain and other celebrity chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system.

Following the screening, Dr. Daniel R. George, Associate Professor, Penn State College of Medicine, will give some perspective.

Please join us to learn more about how you can help Downtown Daily Bread continue to feed the hungry and homeless in Harrisburg. Lunch is served every day of the year, and more than 28,000 meals were served last year. Visit to contact us about volunteer opportunities and donations.

Donations will be accepted at this free movie event! Register to attend at Use password Downtown Daily Bread. Seating limited to the first 110 friends and supporters of DDB.  This event is sponsored by “Provisions”, your neighborhood grocery, located in Strawberry Square.

Since 1858, Pine Street has been a powerful force for good in the Harrisburg community. From feeding the hungry and homeless of Harrisburg to exalting God through worship, music, and the related arts, the ministries of the church are as strong today as ever.

Pine Street Presbyterian Church was founded in 1858 as a group of forty-two members led by James McCormick, Jr. They erected an elegant Gothic Revival church designed by Luther M. Simon at Third and Pine streets and laid the cornerstone in 1859. Worship services during the first year were held in various places around town, including the Senate chamber of the Capitol.
