All Around The Table

The Food Security Network of Newfoundland and Labrador is thrilled to launch a new collection of short films called All Around the Table, which highlight traditional food skills and knowledge of seniors in Eastern Newfoundland. Twelve amazing seniors from the Avalon Peninsula were interviewed to share their food stories, tips and traditions on camera.

Watch all twelve videos at the Root Cellars Rock Blog

To host a free community screening of All Around the Table contact Sarah Ferber at 709-237-4026 or sarahferber@foodsecuritynews.com.
