WE DID IT!
...AND IT WAS ALL THANKS TO YOU!
We exceeded our goal and raised $7529 for Healthy Options!
For the 4th year in a row, The Campus Kitchens at Gettysburg College competed to raise funds for hunger relief and community empowerment programming.
The Healthy Options Initiative provides families who are food insecure with an increased ability to purchase fresh, local and nutritious food, from fruits and veggies, to eggs, meats and breads, from the Adams County Farm Fresh Markets
Thank you to all who supported the fundraiser this year!!
Didn't get a chance to donate before the fundraiser ended? That's ok! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on contributing to Healthy Options or to get involved with the Adams County Food Policy Council-all are welcome!
HEALTHY OPTIONS COMPLETED ITS 3rd SEASON!
74 total families participated in 2013! We have been able to expand our participating households, thanks to generous support from the community!!
