Join us for a Special Showing of A Place at the Table

We’re excited to partner with the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut to show A Place at the Table, a thoughtful documentary which takes a look at hunger in America through the lens of three people who are struggling with food insecurity:

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.

Wednesday, May 1, 5:30 p.m.
Three Rivers Community College, Multi-Purpose Room F117
574 New London Turnpike, Norwich, CT

Admission is free

After the screening, we’re hosting a lively panel discussion to talk about the economic, social and cultural implications of hunger in our nation and what can be done to help make healthy and affordable food accessible to all featuring:

  • Carl Asikainen, Community Program Manager at TEEG, North Grosvenordale
  • Virginia Mason, President & CEO of the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut 
  • Keith Fontaine, Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer, William Backus Hospital and Founder of New London County Food Policy Council

Please RSVP to Jennifer Thomas, 203-469-5000 ext. 302, or email jthomas@ctfoodbank.org by Monday, April 29.  We look forward to seeing you there! 

Connecticut Food Bank will also screen A Place at the Table in other regions in Connecticut including May 13th in New Haven, and later dates in Waterbury, Norwalk and Bantam. Check back for more information, dates and locations.
