Stop & Shop Supermarket Company LLC will host a “Healthy Teen Summit” at the Stop & Shop located at 150 Whalley
Avenue in New Haven on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at 3pm. A Panel of four teenagers will discuss how food and all its
issues play out in their lives and how they see it impacting the lives of their friends and peers. The Panel will be
moderated by Charlie O’Connell, who attended Hillhouse High School and graduated from University of Pennsylvania,
who is now the Founder of FITSCRIP LLC., a fitness center located at Science Park in New Haven. Charlie is also the head
Track and Field coach at Hopkins School in New Haven.
The store will transform the entrance to create a stage and seating area for the panel discussion to be followed by an
activity called “Hunger Games” – a modified scavenger hunt to identify, locate and retrieve food items representing the
best and the worst choices for achieving a healthy and powerful body. Refreshments will follow.
The event planner is currently seeking to select the four teenagers who will serve on the panel. Teenagers who are
comfortable speaking to a large group, and who feel passionate about how food affects their lives, families and peers,
are invited to submit the attached form for consideration. Selected panelists will be expected to attend 3 planning
meetings between March 10th and April 22nd. Teen panelists will be recognized in the following ways:
Letter of recommendation for college or job
$50 Stop and Shop gift card
Recognition in various media
Preferred hiring if desired when feasible for part-time job at Stop and Shop
Input from the selected teens at initial planning meeting will be incorporated into the event script and is very important
to the success of the event. We want good ideas. We are also inviting agencies and organizations that serve youth to
present information tables and participate in the planning if interested.
