Late, So Late — #WATWB

Friday was the last Friday of March, the day WATWB posts are supposed to be posted. But that didn’t happen. I had a story to tell, but not a story to link to. I figured it would show up in the local paper, but it didn’t.

This is from the newsletter of the Connecticut Historic Society. Not something I can easily link to, but something I hope they don’t mind my sharing. This is about businesses being part of the community in which they are located.

HARTFORD FOOD SYSTEM

Mobile Market

Every Tuesday through the end of June @ 11:00 am

Free and open to the public

The CHS now serves as a weekly location for Hartford Food System’s Mobile Market, which brings fresh fruits and vegetables, and pantry staples into areas with limited healthy food access.

For any readers in the Hartford area, I am linking to the Hartford Food System’s web page.

The “We are the World” Blogfest is in its third year. This blogfest’s goal is to spread the message of light, hope and love in today’s world. We are challenging all participants to share the positive side of humanity. This month’s co-hosts, Sylvia Stein, Eric Lahti, Shilpa Garg, and Lizbeth Hart welcome participants. You might want to join us in during future months. #WATWB is a blog hop on the last Friday of every month. If you want to SIGN UP for WE ARE THE WORLD – Click HERE to be part of the Light.

Below are some pictures from previous posts about the Connecticut Historic Society and Museum.

  1. Dan, it is always uplifting to read about people helping others especially when it makes healthy options available to those who would otherwise have limited access. And as far as the post, good news is welcome anytime.

    1. Thanks Maggie. The organizers are very supportive of these posts, whenever they get posted. Hartford Food has been running this operation for a long time. With the pandemic, locations that used to work aren’t as good. They’re adapting.

      1. I was very upset when I read an article about a young girl that revealed to her online class that she was starving. No family should do without food or shelter. This is a very worthwhile cause.

  2. This is one thing that has done my heart good knowing that people in need, both pre-pandemic and during the pandemic, are being fed by their community – either through an organization or a few kind souls. I’m honored to be part of one of those organizations here in Appleton and I often wonder what these people would do without this kind of assistance. Thanks for sharing, Dan. Good news is never ever too late.

  3. We hear so much about people looking the other way when someone is in need of a hand up, it’s heartwarming to know that there are individuals and organizations who are committed to helping as much as they can. In the right hands a little can go a long way.

    Beautiful building, inside and out.

  4. Hi Dan – not to worry … I’m often late with my entry – so good to see you with this offering of healthy fresh veg and fruit for the local area – especially as it’s situated outside the local Connecticut History Society every Tuesday. Excellent choice for #WATWB … it’s always interesting to see the positives that we all come up with. Thanks – Hilary

    1. Thanks Hilary. It’s hard to tell from the building, but this is a very good location for the Mobile Market. With public transit options reduced during the pandemic, it’s so nice to take the food where it’s needed.

    1. Thanks Deborah. The museum itself has been suffering due to Covid restrictions. For them to reach out and help others when they are having problems struck me as very special.

    1. I think that’s the important thing to recognize, Janis, that there are people in need. I applaud everyone who is helping, from organizations like this to people like you and your husband. It takes a lot of people to make it work.
