On Tuesday, November 12th, Community Plates will invite the public to a complimentary viewing of the documentary A Place at the Table. Community Plates has partnered with emergency assistance agency Person-to-Person to educate the audience about the widespread hunger crisis facing America and to encourage attendees to get involved in solving the problem through volunteerism.
Doors open at 6:30pm and the film begins at 7:00 pm.
A Place at the Table tells the powerful stories of three Americans who face hunger on a daily basis, maintaining their dignity even as they struggle just to eat. The film has received much acclaim and shed light on a crisis that impacts 50 million Americans, including nearly 100,000 in Connecticut, one of the wealthiest states in the nation.
