Programs for Economically Disadvantaged Communities
Chronic disease affects all communities, and we know that some racial and ethnic groups have a higher incidence of chronic disease and an increased incidence of related complications.
We’ve piloted programs within Trenton/Lawrence communities with programs at the Trenton Farmers’ Market and with Capital City Farms. We also have a Signature Meeting held once a month at the Bethany House in Trenton. These programs are supported and planned by Suppers staff in collaboration with community partners. Whenever possible, funding is provided so that participation is on a suggested-donation basis. The ultimate goal is to fund programs so that no person is turned away due to the inability to pay.
Conferences and events are organized around a health-related theme with several speakers and subject matter experts presenting their perspective on a given health topic. Collaborations with our community partners are often featured.
Sourcing Health Locally – An event where farmers, eaters, cooks, health advocates and medical practitioners come together to discuss how food sourcing can affect the course of one’s life.
