From Sophie Breitbart ’16:

Do you ever go into Middletown or Hartford and wish you could do something to help those less fortunate than you? Would you like to help alleviate the stress and worry now being experienced by four hundred twenty thousand Connecticut residents because their food stamp benefits were cut as of November 1? Looking for an excuse to start celebrating the holidays? We’ve got you covered!

Come visit the Fast-a-thon table at Usdan to donate points to the Amazing Grace Food Pantry. We’ll be tabling for a week starting this Wednesday. Stop by between noon-1 and 6-7 pm or you can give through this link starting Wednesday.If you’re low on points, just consider skipping your next latte run so that the boy you tutor can enjoy a meal (nearly one in fiveConnecticut children qualify as food insecure.)Holidays = giving = donating points = let the Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanzaa/Saturnalia/Festivus music begin!

Date: Wednesday, November 20
Time: 12-1 p.m.
Place: Usdan
Cost: 5-50 points
