PROVIDENCE - Crossroads was excited to partner with New England Patriots' Matt Judon to offer a family fun day to our families experiencing homelessness.
Judon gave back to the children in our family programs by joining them at Gather Farm for an afternoon filled with gardening and connecting to nature.
The families took part in several fun farm activities including a hands-on planting class, a medicinal herb walk and a gentle movement and yoga activity. At the end of the afternoon, the families enjoyed pizza and fresh Gather Farm ice cream.
“[Gardening is] something I like to do,” shared Judon in an interview with WPRI 12. “Hopefully other little kids – little boys and girls, just in their own backyard – start growing their own stuff and eating their own food, just to get a little bit healthier.”

Thank you to the Patriots, Matt Judon, Gather Farm and all who support families in need at Crossroads.
