Our Core Receives a Grant From the National Farm to School Network COVID-19 Relief Fund
July 31st, 2020
Our Core is proud to announce that we have received a $5,000 grant from the National Farm to School Network to support our ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This funding will be used to purchase food at market rates from local farmers. We will then distribute the food to Newburgh families in need.
Normally, our capacity to distribute food is limited only to what we grow ourselves, with the help of sales and donations. With the COVID-19 pandemic causing a heightened need for accessible, healthy food, we decided to expand our donations to include purchased produce so that we may better support families within the Newburgh community. This grant will allow us to continue serving the citizens of Newburgh in these uncertain times.
