Free Showing of A Place at the Table in New Haven

Connecticut Food Bank and the United Way of Greater New Haven are partnering to show A Place at the Table, a documentary that takes a look at the rising crisis of food insecurity in America through the eyes of three people who are struggling with hunger:

    A single mother who grew up in poverty trying to provide a better life for her two kids,

    A Colorado fifth-grader who often depends on friends and neighbors for food, and 

    A Mississippi second-grader whose health issues are exacerbated by the empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.

The free screening is Monday, May 13, 5:30 p.m., at Criterion Cinemas, 86 Temple Street, New Haven.

After the film, a lively panel discussion moderated by Jack Healy, President  & CEO of United Way of Greater New Haven, will follow to talk about the economic, social and cultural implications of hunger and what can be done to help make healthy and affordable food accessible to all featuring:

  • ·         Congresswoman Rosa L. DeLauro
  • ·         Nancy L. Carrington, President & CEO, Connecticut Food Bank
  • ·         Rev. Bonita Grubbs, Executive Director, Christian Community Action
  • ·         Lucy Nolan, Executive Director, End Hunger Connecticut!

To attend, please RSVP to Jennifer Thomas, 203-469-5000 ext. 302 or email jthomas@ctfoodbank.org

More dates to be announced soon for June showings in Waterbury, Norwalk and Bantam. Check back for more information.
