Non-perishable food donations will be accepted at the door to benefit local food pantries, and there will be a brief question and answer discussion following the film.
According to the film, 50 million Americans”1 in 4 children”don’t know where their next meal is coming from. A Place at the Table tells the powerful stories of three such Americans, who maintain their dignity even as they struggle just to eat. The film seeks to change how people think about the hungry, and offers ideas of how the issue could be solved.
The Shoreline Basic Needs Task Force is a collaboration of community groups and concerned people, working to affect change that increases self-sufficiency among vulnerable individuals and families in need along the Connecticut Shoreline.
