Breaking Bread to Foster Connections

Come join us for a community meal — Breaking Bread to Foster Connections — that will focus on how to create pathways to success for returning citizens in Greater Hartford. This meal will bring together women and men released from prison, their families, service providers and the general public to share success stories as well as information about available resources to help returning citizens lead meaningful, productive lives. Equally important, the meal will be a way to meet each other face-to-face and share our concerns and our dreams for creating a more supportive, vibrant community.

Our first two community meals will be held in Hartford:

Tuesday, August 21, 6-8 p.m.
Immanuel Congregational Church
10 Woodland Street

There is no charge, but you MUST REGISTER to participate. To receive an invitation, please contact us at and include the date you would like to attend.   To ensure that your invitation reaches your inbox rather than your junk mail, please add to your “safe list” of email addresses.

KAI was founded in 2012 out of concerns raised by school administrators and parents regarding budget cuts in arts programs in Hartford schools.  KAI is a public charity, working to bring the performing arts and education together.  The mission of KAI is to provide arts-integrated educational initiatives through financial support and community partnerships.  KAI enriches learning experiences that benefit students, families, and the community.

All proceeds of the Fundraiser will support the R. J. Kinsella Magnet School of Performing Arts, a magnet school that attracts students from Hartford and over 40 surrounding zip codes.

Beer, wine, and hors d’oeuvres graciously provided by Hog River Brewery, Maximum Beverage, and Bears Restaurant Group.
