Two promotional postcards have been designed, one for children and one for adults, to be distributed at
the neighborhood schools, the Fair Haven Clinic and the Library. Additional copies will be distributed
elsewhere in New Haven to invite our city neighbors to enjoy our trail system and its river and park
connections. Presently, fundraising for printing is underway. Samples of the postcards will be shared
with CSNA asap
The gardens are going strong: growing, plentiful and providing food for many people and families.
Kathleen attends the New Haven Food Policy Council monthly meetings and reports that the data
update to the 2015 report regarding hunger and food insecurity in New Haven is nearing completion in a
