|Fall 2015 Education and Outreach Impact|
by Lizi Rozenberg
Our Education and Outreach Department ispleased to report some quick measures of community impact we have had from September through December of 2015, through various programs and classes taught right here at the Co-op, as well as off-site.
We would also like to acknowledge and thank Anna Edson (her classes are included in these numbers) and our wonderful Harvest of the Month volunteers. These volunteers graciously go to local school classrooms and teach children about healthy eating. In addition, we have a dedicated group of volunteers who reach out to children at KidsPLAYce every Friday morning (reading stories and providing free healthy snacks). These additional impacts go above and beyond the numbers reflected.
*Correction notice: We apologize for a typo in the printed version of the February 2016 Food for Thought. The number of classes taught at local schools was mistakenly printed as 3. The correct number is 31.
