On Thursday, Oct. 20, the Vitamin group visited Ware County Head Begin Heart. There, we discovered about Georgia Organics’ Waycross Household Farm Share Pilot — funded via a Group Transformation Grant that DECAL awarded — to handle childhood meals insecurity for kids ages beginning to 5 in Waycross, Georgia.
The Head Begin workers and Georgia Organics group confirmed dad and mom learn how to plant spinach and Swiss chard seeds, all whereas discussing meals schooling. Each groups inspired households to register for the Household Farm Share Field.
As a pilot program, Household Farm Share Field supply lasts six weeks and responds to group wants and preferences for contemporary meals. Collaborating households obtain a low-cost bag of locally-grown produce every week. This help is feasible via a partnership between WayGreen, Georgia Organics, and native farmers.
