Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington (ACSGW), with the help of Adventist HealthCare, has started Healthy Child 1000, a program to assist mothers with needs, from conception to the time the baby turns two.
Prior to the new program, ACSGW already provided food and diapers and a monthly food basket to families. Participating families can now receive fresh produce, nutritious shelf-stable foods and baked goods every other week, as well as feminine hygiene items and 100 diapers each month. At weaning, baby/toddler food will be added.
