Chef Michael braves the freezer to feed the children a healthy meal that they will enjoy.

“He’ll do anything for the kids,” says Executive Director John Gutman, of Chef Michael Arditti. The New Covenant Center Chef has been preparing and cooking the weekday meals for two years for the kids and moms at Inspirica House (shelter) in Stamford. This week Michael donned his hoodie, winter gloves and Hollywood glasses to spend time in our -4 degree freezer searching for something special. After hearing that New Covenant Center was going to provide two lunches for 150 kids during the last week of the Boys and Girls Summer Camp at the Yerwood Center, Michael found chicken tenders for one of the meals. The MAVFoundation, who advocates for the end to hunger, approached us about helping out during the last week of camp. New Covenant Center served lunch to the camp yesterday and will serve another lunch tomorrow. We also want to thank St. John Church of Darien for donating juice, water, energy bars and tangerines as part of the lunches for the campers.
