A Place at the Table

The Bar Harbor Food Pantry and Reel Pizza present “A Place at the Table”, a documentary that shows us what hunger looks like here in America and examines the systems that allow so many families to live without enough access to food in a country with so much abundance. We invite you to join us in watching this film and stay afterward to meet some of our local food security advocates to find out about resources that exist here, how they work and how people can help.

The doors open at 12:30. Film starts at 1 pm. The film is 1 hour 40 minutes, with 30-45 minutes discussion to follow.

Suggested donation of $5 per person or non-perishable food items at the door. All donations will go to the Bar Harbor Food Pantry.

Acadia National Park

The First National Park East of the Mississippi River

People have been drawn to the rugged coast of Maine throughout history. Awed by its beauty and diversity, early 20th-century visionaries donated the land that became Acadia National Park. The park is home to many plants and animals, and the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic coast. Today visitors come to Acadia to hike granite peaks, bike historic carriage roads, or relax and enjoy the scenery.


Check for details on enjoying Acadia National Park this season.
