This year, the CCF grant committee awarded $1500 to the Farm at Penny Lane to expand the Farm-to-Home Produce Pack program. The program provides boxes of fresh healthy produce, grown at the farm, to client-patients of the Center for Excellence in Community Mental Health.
Grant funds will pay to construct a walk-in cold storage space. This space will allow the farm to increase its yield, maintain the nutrients of the fresh produce, and increase the number of clients served.
We visited the farm to talk to the program manager, Matt, and farm manager, Jessamine, about the grant’s impact.
