A simple act of kindness goes a long way for those in need. This is the motto for Church Street Eats, a ministry of over 40 groups who commit their time and talents to help feed and clothe community members. Schools, businesses, and various religious group from all over the state participate in this great cause. Last weekend, residents of Middlewoods of Farmington Independent and Assisted Living community, a group affiliated with Church Street Eats, prepared 100 lunch bags to deliver to Bushnell Park in Hartford. This was part of a weekly initiative designed to help feed locals in need.
After preparing the lunches, residents took a trip to Bushnell Park to help hand out the bagged meals. Grace Crooks, a resident of the award-winning senior living community, was thrilled to participate in the project. She explains, “I used to volunteer at a local food pantry. Now, I live at Middlewoods and can still provide food for those in need - I feel so blessed to be able to give back and stay involved.”
