Our New Project
The project committee has been diligently working since the
beginning of June on our new project, Food Cents. The vision
includes three parts:
- Lessen the consequence of chronic childhood hunger to low-income elementary school children.
- Educate and empower low-income elementary school families with skills, knowledge, and confidence to prepare healthy and affordable meals.
- Educate low-income elementary school children on healthy food choices and healthy lifestyles.
For a short slide show presentation on the project thus far, please visit our Community Projects tab.
