SENIOR COMMUNITY MEAL SITE TRANSFORMED
Sometimes it’s the simple things in life—like a meal shared with others. Hunger Free Colorado and CraftWorks Foundation, partnered on The Nourish Project, a new collaboration for the transformation of local senior community meal sites and menu items, with a goal to enhance the dining experience and increase participation.
The first transformation reveal happened Sept. 17 at the Denver Inner City Parish, with an unveiling of the new meals, décor and dining area; an expected welcome change by the seniors who participated in the selection process and have attended the program for years.
UPCOMING EXHIBITS, NEW TOOLKIT & PBS NEWSHOUR
Fifteen Colorado women are taking aim at hunger with cameras to put real faces and stories to the overwhelming statistics. Experience Hunger Through My Lens by visiting the exhibit or watching the PBS NewsHour report about the real-life experts of hunger. The project also recently released a how-to guide, so other groups can create their own photovoice project.
