Sarah Leathers talks about the importance of making connections and the ripple effect of kindness


On December 3, 2019, Healing Meals Community Project, Founder and CEO, Sarah Leathers spoke on the TedxHartford stage along with seven other passionate people.

When asked about the event, she said she was honored to be able to talk about what drives her every day to make the world a better place. She went on to say, “I am thankful to my sister Cathryn Couch for starting the Ceres Community Project which set in motion the ripple of kindness. I couldn’t do this work without the amazing team at Healing Meals Community Project and all of our volunteers, donors and friends who have made my dream a reality. My hope is that this talk  inspires others to help us grow the ripple of kindness, one true connection at a time.”
