The new Healthy Families dinner series officially kicked off in December 2014! This project is a collaborative effort between the Junior League of Eastern Fairfield County, The Center for Family Justice, the Connecticut Coastal YMCA, Bridgeport and the United Congregational Church of Bridgeport/Norma F. Pfriem Urban Outreach Initiatives.
Healthy Families builds on each organization’s specialty to strengthen families and communities through education on healthy relationships, nutrition, agriculture, community collaboration, literacy and physical exercise. The project focuses on families involved with each of the three partner agencies with at least one child age 3-7, with the goal of positively impacting the child’s school readiness. Bi-monthly dinners, where Leaguers together with the families, are preparing the meal, serving, eating, reading, playing and participating in physical activities, are the primary vehicles to support the project's goal. Healthy Families is an incredibly rewarding way for our Members to directly impact the greater Bridgeport community.
