Good News Story – DARTS Rate My Plate

The Your Side DARTS Program provides recreational and social activities for adults in wheelchairs. Since May, we have moved online with new activities and the group has been loving it! One of these activities is “Rate My Plate” where everyone shares a photo of a dish they made to discuss. What better way to bond than over food?
