FRC Events 2014-15

The West Haven Family Resource Center hosted the CT Food Bank and its GROW! Truck in October. Local parents participated in a nutrition class and then were able to"shop" for food from the truck.  Spots were filled for the next visit in November, but families were able to sign up to be on waiting list through the Family Resource Center. Families in need can call the FRC at203-931-4739 to be connected with additional community resources.

FRC also held a Family Literacy Night,
featuring the book "The Apple Pie Tree," by Zoe Hall. Every family got a copy to take home, as well as a child-size rolling pin and the chef hats they made themselves. On the last page of the book is a recipe for homemade apple pie, crust and all, and participants followed those instructions. Families said it was the best pie they ever had!
