“Planting Seeds For The Future”
The Food Bank launched a pilot program to help connect kids to food, health, nutrition, and their environment through hands-on learning at the farm. AllCare Health, the Boys and Girls Club, the YMCA, and OSU Extension came together to help make sure local youth have a bright future by helping them build skills for life at Raptor Creek Farm. On site they learn gardening skills, nutrition, environmental stewardship, and are physically active while helping to grow and harvest fresh fruits and vegetables for people in need. In our pilot year, more than 110 children participated and we plan to more than double the impact of this program in the near future with goals to reach 200 to 300 local kids.
The Josephine County Food Bank and Raptor Creek Farm are operated under Friends of Josephine County Food Bank Network:
