Food Assistance Programs
At Connecticut Korean Presbyterian Church, we offer various food assistance programs to address different needs within the New Haven community. Our programs are designed to provide immediate help while also promoting sustainable solutions. Here are some of the programs we offer:
1. Food Pantry
Our food pantry is stocked with a wide range of non-perishable food items, fresh produce, and basic household essentials. We understand that different families have different dietary restrictions, so we strive to offer a diverse selection of food to cater to various needs. Our pantry is replenished regularly, ensuring that there is always something available for those in need.
2. Community Meals
In addition to our food pantry, we organize community meals where individuals and families can enjoy a hot, nutritious meal in a welcoming environment. These meals are an opportunity for community members to come together, share a meal, and find support. Our dedicated volunteers prepare and serve the meals with love and compassion, creating a sense of belonging for everyone who attends.
3. Nutrition Education
We believe that knowledge is power, especially when it comes to making healthy food choices. That's why we provide nutrition education programs to empower individuals and families with the information they need to make informed decisions about their diet. Our workshops cover a wide range of topics, including meal planning, budgeting, and cooking demonstrations using ingredients commonly found in our food pantry.
4. Referral Services
We understand that food assistance is just one aspect of ensuring overall well-being. Therefore, we also offer referral services to connect individuals and families with additional resources and support. Whether it's accessing healthcare, finding employment opportunities, or applying for government assistance programs, our knowledgeable staff is here to guide and assist you every step of the way.
