Philly to put it all ‘On the Table’ with dining and discussion series

Pedro Ramos, President and CEO of The Philadelphia Foundation, joined NewsWorks Tonight’s Mary Cummings-Jordan to discuss the event.

On May 23, residents from across the city of Philadelphia will gather in small groups to share a meal and talk about the issues and opportunities unique to the region.

The event is part of a national movement called “On the Table,” first launched in Chicago in 2014. The Philadelphia Foundation, along with the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation are partnering to bring “On the Table” to the greater Philadelphia region.
