Healing Meals Community Project

Chrissy Barnard, M.Ed.

After spending a year volunteering in the Healing Meals kitchen and as a Delivery Angel, Chrissy Barnard joined the Healing Meals team as Volunteer Coordinator. Chrissy has seen first hand how beautifully the Healing Meals community comes together to help those in a health crisis, and how impactful it is to the clients and their families, and she is inspired by the commitment of HMCP’s dedicated and hardworking youth volunteers. She is happy to see how the volunteers are willing to give of themselves for others and through that experience feel empowered to make a difference in the world. Youth Volunteers learn practical life skills and grow in confidence, independence, responsibility, communication and leadership skills. 

Chrissy was the Volunteer Chairperson for the HARC Walkathon and Golf Tournament for eight years, and is currently the Parent Volunteer Coordinator for Simsbury High School’s Theatre Department. She was an elementary and preschool teacher for 11 years. Chrissy is married and has four children.
