Family Engagement Program

Family Engagement Program - As part of a partnership between the Dorchester Family Engagement Network and Fields Corner Children Thrive, families participated in a Nutrition Workshop Series throughout the month of March at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester. As part of the series, families were hosted by the Star Market at J.F.K., where they were welcomed by Linda del Pino, Assistant Store Director and Chanel Young, Concierge/Events Planner. The families enjoyed a private reception and were treated to gift cards and other goodies. The group then put their knowledge of nutrition and reading food labels to the test as they participated in a Healthy Scavenger Hunt throughout the store.
