A new REACH program offers grants to area institutions, soup kitchens, and food pantries.  Originally funded to provide special food at Thanksgiving and Christmas-times and linking Mark’s love of cooking with the donation of food for special events, Mark’s Meals has expanded upon the seasonal concept, creating awareness, and offering assistance to those individuals and organizations providing food and meals to those in need. 

Grants were given following our fund-raisers to the Plainville Community Food Pantry and West Hartford Food Pantry as well as support for holiday programming through the Greater Hartford YMCA.
