SOUTHINGTON - Bread for Life welcomes families to join them for their new initiative, the Families Feeding Friends program, which started April 23.
“As a mom, I understand the importance of instilling the value of volunteer service to my children,” said Donna Ayer, executive director of Bread for Life. “We developed the Families Feeding Friends program to provide families the opportunity to connect while serving others. This initiative is the idea of three moms who wanted to see families volunteering together.
“Thanks to Bread for Life volunteer and Client Services Director Missy Cipriano and Bread for Life Families Feeding Friends Volunteer Leader Cheryl Trovato for heading up this program, which will encourage community involvement while increasing quality time together as a family.”
Each Families Feeding Friends session will be open to 12 to 15 families who will participate in organized activities throughout the year. These activities will be held on Sunday afternoons from 2 to 3 p.m.
Spring and summer activities will include a planting project on May 21, a jar of sunshine project on June 11 and helping in the Common Good Garden from July 10 to 15. A complete list of activities and materials needed is available on southingtonbreadforlife.org.
