On Saturday May 16 and Sunday, May 17, the Fellowship Place Steppers participated in both the 2015 National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Walk benefiting NAMI Elm City Chapter, and the 2015 Walk Against Hunger for the CT Food Bank.
Saturday’s walk for the NAMI Elm City Chapter was held at Bushnell Park in Hartford. NAMI CT is an important resource in our state that provides critical support to Connecticut families and individuals impacted by serious mental illness.
Sunday’s walk for the CT Food Bank was held at the College Woods Pavilion at East Rock Park. An important partner in Fellowship Place’s Healthy Meals Initiative, the CT Food Bank has provided our agency with 21,177 lbs of food this past year, at a reduced cost. This partnership is vital to the success of Fellowship’s Healthy Meals Initiative, which offers our clients access to free nutritional meals daily, with menus that increase their intake of fruits, leafy greens, vegetables, & whole grains. The program also exposes them to a variety of educational programs to help them make healthy food choices.
