Intergenerational Volunteering with Healing Meals (USA)
On June 26, 2021, volunteers from the International Association of Youth and Students for Peace (IAYSP) joined other volunteers once again at HealthBarn’s Healing Meals situated in Hawthorne. NJ. Healing Meals provides healthy meals for families with children undergoing treatment for cancer, serious blood disorders, and sickle cell anemia and recently added seniors in need to the care list. The experience was meaningful, mainly because those preparing the meals came from basically three-generational ages. Regardless of the age difference, the shared activity created a strong sense of working for a common cause.
