What People Are Saying About the Program
“Frenchtown Heritage Hub’s partnership with the Family Nutrition Program has been invaluable in inspiring our community to eat healthy, fresh food. Your assistance has helped the community garden to flourish. It often provides the ingredients for our cooking demos showing them that they too can make simple, delicious recipes from food they’ve grown!”
Lauren Chappell, Frenchtown Farmers Market Manager
“The Oak Leaf Landings garden has given our senior residents an opportunity to grow their own fresh vegetables, but working in the garden has also helped them become more active and socialized.”
Beverly Hougland. CEO for Council on Aging in Osceola County
“For me, the greatest impact for the day was having a platform as a small farmer to educate the children on where their food comes from. It was important to provide these children a product which, because it is local, is also fresher, more nutritious and tastes better.”
Michael Meier, Ground Floor Farm
