Tuesday, September 15, 2015
"It is our pleasure to host Governor Baker and Lieutenant Governor Polito at Community Harvest Project", said Jodi Koeman, Executive Director of Community Harvest Project. "CHP is proud of the way we are improving access to healthy food to the people who need it most. We want to highlight the way organizations can work together to address the issue of food insecurity."
Baker and Polito will tour, and participate in harvesting, washing and packaging vegetables, CHP's 16.5 acre not-for-profit farm.
Community Harvest Project (CHP), a 501(c)3 organization, is the only non-profit in the area dedicated to improving access to healthy foods through community engagement. Through their volunteer farming, education, health and leadership programs and their partnerships, they bring thousands of community members together each year to improve access to healthy foods for individuals and families in need across Worcester County.
