Power Up Breakfast Meeting

On the second Tuesday of every month Friends of Fort Point Channel holds a Power Up Breakfast Meeting. Each month a new speaker joins us to engage and inspire our community members. Our mission is for you to leave feeling recharger to enter the community with the thought of making a difference. We called our Breakfast Meetings Power Up because we want you to leave each month feeling rejuvenated and ready to make a difference. This is also a great way to meet other members of our community. We all lead such busy lives, but on these mornings we slow down, grab a coffee and a scone and connect with one another. If you have any questions or would like to recommend a speaker, please e-mail Samantha at samantha@friendsfpc.org

Cheryl Schondek from the Greater Boston Food Bank gave a riveting presentation on food insecurities and how hunger is still affecting American’s today in 2019. We learned that 1 in 10 eastern Massachusetts residences have food insecurities. Even worse, 1 in 8 CHILDREN in our region are food insecure. Of course, we were shocked. Cheryl informed us what we can easily do within our homes, community and by simply volunteering our time to make a difference.

Want to be a part of the change? E-mail Samantha at samantha@friendsfpc.org to sign-up to volunteer with Friends at the Greater Boston Food Bank in September 2019.

On February 12th State Representative David Biele joined us to discuss the new policies he is working towards specifically in regards to climate control and the economic growth of our artists. As a follow up, Representative Biele shared that “a few individuals asked the question on how to fund the climate resiliency measures”. “Shortly after that meeting, the House recently announced an initiative to help municipalities pay for energy efficiency/climate change projects” stated Biele.

“The grant initiative is called GreenWorks and will spend $1 billion over ten years to help fund these projects.”

Here are follow up links to these topics.
