Action Against Hunger’s vision is of a world without hunger

Meatballs Returns!


Thank you for joining Action Against Hunger for the screening and cast reunion of the Canadian cult film Meatballs on Wednesday June 4, 2014 at the  TIFF Bell Lightbox.

In 1979, a low-budget Canadian film starring Bill Murray and a host of up-and-coming Canadian actors transformed into an unforgettable cult classic. Who could forget that absurdly charming sleeper hit, Meatballs? Just in time for the movie’s 35th anniversary, indulge your appetite for nostalgia and help a great cause.

Action Against Hunger Canada is bringing together an intimate, one-time reunion of some of the movie’s most memorable actors and friends. All funds raised go directly to Action Against Hunger – a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting hunger around the world.
