Plymouth Church Hosts Panel on Food Justice Tomorrow; Yankee Fair Saturday, October 28

Tomorrow (Sunday, October 15) from 12:30 until 2:00 PM Plymouth Church will present a panel discussion on Food Justice in recognition of World Hunger Sunday.

[W]e will gather in our Reception Room to share a simple lunch of rice and beans and talk about food insecurity in our own city. Last year, the mayor’s office estimated more than 1.2 million New Yorkers live without … access to enough food. Many of our neighbors worry that the food will run out before their next paycheck comes. So we will hear from The Campaign Against Hunger, CHIPS, United Community Centers, and Council Member Restler talk about their work in combating hunger in our neighborhoods.

If you would like to attend, please register here.

On Saturday, October 28, Plymouth will hold its annual Yankee Fair from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM. There will be a “Family
Street Fair” on Orange Street between Hicks and Henry, with “fun & games,” a “children’s sing-along,” and “Lunch for Everyone.” There will also be an indoor market where you may purchase books, food items, craft items, knick-knacks, and, at the Underground Thrift Store, clothing. You may also take a tour of the historic church, where Abraham Lincoln worsshiped before declaring his candidacy for President, and The Reverend Henry Ward Beecher conducted his campaign against slavery.
