The two appeared on CBS 62’s “Michigan Matters” with Senior Producer/Host Carol Cain and discussed Project Healthy Community. It aims to lessen health problems and risks by pro-actively working on living better by changing habits.

Project Healthy Community is a non-profit social enterprise whose mission is to promote the well-being of persons of all ages within communities in need. It was formed in 2013 as a partnership between Temple Israel, Hartford Memorial Baptist Church, the Northwest Activities Center and members of the Northwest Detroit Community.

    Interesting show which I often watch on Sun mornings. You are constantly in need of voluntary help, what % of this help is provided by the people you supply with free food. Obviously, this would be a great way for them to payback, thanks & look forward to your reply..
