Join the Bridgeport Food Policy Council and the Bridgeport Health and Social Services Department at New Vision Ministeries for our first annual “Food Matters” event. We are proud to be presenting the first annual Bridgeport Food Hero Award!!

The purpose of this event is to connect community residents with organizations and programs that participate on the Bridgeport Food Policy Council advisory board. We hope to spark community interest in creating a local food system that is equitable and accessible to all residents.

Childcare will be provided and light food and drinks will be served.
