A Place at the Table - FREE SHUTTLE

Category: Events and Activities
Venue/Location: Off Campus
Date: Sunday, November 17, 2013 - 12:00 PM - 5:15 PM

The Monadnock Farm & Community Coalition, in collaboration with the The Colonial Theatre and community partners, is presenting "A Place at the Table" - a nationally acclaimed film underscoring the relation between hunger and obesity and the need for more accessible and affordable food - on Sunday, November 17 at 1pm at the Colonial Theatre in Keene, NH.

Many of our students come from food insecure families and communities. Some of them are thinking about careers in politics, business, human services and education, where they can be powerful forces for change. All of them have the potential to be touched by this film. Talk about "an education that matters."

Following the film, there will be a panel discussion, moderated by Senator Molly Kelly, where participants will see examples of the work that's being done locally on the related problems of hunger, food insecurity, obesity, and poverty. There will be opportunities to take meaningful action in our own community, and perhaps continue the discussion back on our campus. 

The event is FREE, and includes a live musical performance, reception & refreshments. Suggested admission is a donation of fresh or canned food for local charity. 

A FREE SHUTTLE for students will leave from the Field House on the FPU Rindge campus at 12:00 noon, and return at 5:15pm. To reserve a seat on the shuttle, students must sign up at the Info Desk at the Campus Center. A $5 deposit will be returned at boarding.
