Bridgeport Rescue Mission is teaming up with local churches to provide meals for children from Norwalk’s poorest neighborhoods. The Mission, in conjunction with the Norwalk Housing Authority (NHA) and Norwalk Grassroots Tennis (NGT), will distribute about 230 daily meals to children taking part in summer programs. The meals will be served for eight weeks at NGT and five NHA learning centers located in low-income housing sites throughout Norwalk.
“During the summer break, the children and their families who depend on nutritious meals provided at school are confronted with a huge problem,” said Mission Executive Director Terry Wilcox. “These breakfasts and lunches are critical to the well-being and health of the children in these programs.”
