START your day with some Food For Thought at our annual breakfast, as we bring community and business leaders together to spark conversation and collaboration around issues of poverty. We'll also celebrate our recent merger with the Bridgeport Child Advocacy Coalition and its positive impact on our collective efforts to improve the quality of life and economic well-being of Greater Bridgeport.
