Event Details

We will be hosting a documentary screening of ‘Just Getting By’, and Q&A with the director, Bess O’Brien. We encourage you to bring canned food and non-perishable items to Box Office to be donated to our local food shelter.

Just Getting By, a new documentary film by Bess O’Brien, is a sweeping yet intimate look at the lives of Vermonters who are struggling with food and housing insecurity.
Vermont has the second highest rate of homeless people in the United States, right after California. One-third of Vermonters struggle to put food on the table. These are big issues for a small state. Just Getting By focuses on these issues in the lives of everyday people.
The film tells the stories of working families, folks who are homeless and are accessing food shelves and soup kitchens, people who are living in the temporary hotel/motel program, New Americans grappling with the cost of living in America, Native people creating innovative farming practices and folks on the ground providing services to their fellow Vermonters in need.
Just Getting By explores the challenges and incredible resiliency that low-income Vermonters experience every day.
