NAMI:CV serving up comfort at this year's Battle of Plattsburgh

Winners will be announced on the steps of City Hall immediately following a concert by Inisheer. Hand-crafted awards by local artist Kelly Jarrard will be presented.

"We're hoping this will be a yearly thing and that restaurants will be really interested in earning these titles," said Bennett.

While recognition of participating restaurants and businesses will be a big part of the event, so will raising awareness about the free services provided by NAMI: CV, said Bennett.

"We're hoping more people will become aware of our organization through this because we're one of those organizations you know is there but you may not know what it does," said Bennett. "It's invaluable to the community."

"A variety of ingredients mixed together make a healthy soup," added Bennett. "A variety of people working together makes a healthy community. A healthy community working together can battle stigma and enable everyone to reach their full potential."
