Johnson MS & BNAGWDCA in the News!

A very quick and happy email to thank you once more for all of the work, volunteer time and dedication you and the Black Nurses Associations of Washington have put forth towards our Pantry Program and Johnson Middle School.  We are thrilled to share that Johnson MS was featured in the news with a huge shout out pointing to its new program, Connected Schools, which partners with local organizations such as DC Food Project and Black Nurses Association, in an effort to better be able to meet the academic, economic, socioemotional and psychological needs of students.  TOGETHER, WE HAVE MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE!

Here is the article if you would like to share it with your organization:

In hopes we can continue this partnership into the next school year!

Your friends at DC Food Project,

Alysa and Lucie

 Johnson Middle School would be better able to meet the academic, economic, socioemotional and

 psychological needs of students through partnerships with the DC Department of Behavioral Health,
