Round and Round the Meal Table We Go


At the Trenton Housing Authority we are still feeding residents’ children healthy afterschool meals. The children are really enjoying the meals. As a matter of fact, they seem to display a sense of pride in healthy eating as well as the staff.  This reminds our team of how First Lady Michelle OBama motivated children to take on a healthy lifestyle with health food central to her movement. We also want to thank our childcare folks, especially Markia Francis who is doing a great job in our afterschool program.
