Everyone is Welcome

Learning you or a loved one has kidney disease can be scary and confusing. It is a time when questions abound and the answers seem to be few and far between. That's why Kidney Connect can be a lifeline. For some, group meetings are a way to meet others sharing a similar story and learn from their experience.

Kidney Community Kitchen

Soup is a great way to use up vegetables that are not as fresh. You can serve this soup hot or chilled and it's easy to freeze in individual portions for ready-to-go lunches.
