Growing a Stronger Community

Growing a Stronger Community

Tuesday October 9, 10 – 11 am

Community Emergency Assistance Programs (CEAP) was founded in 1970 as a food shelf responding to the growing need for human services in Brooklyn Center & Brooklyn Park and since then, it has evolved into an organization focused on building community and creating greater access to nutritious food, particularly for vulnerable populations such as seniors, youth and families.  This session will provide more information on CEAP's history, outlook for the future and most importantly, how you can play a role in supporting this important community resource. Refreshments provided. Register by October 4.
