NEWS & UPDATES

WE DID IT!

...AND IT WAS ALL THANKS TO YOU!

We exceeded our goal in February and raised $7,529 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!!


Also, we'd like to extend a big 'Thank You' to the Gettysburg College Choir, whose March 22nd, 2014 concert also benefitted Healthy Options, wrapping up their Spring 2014 Tour. Thanks for recognizing and aiding in funding this community program!

Didn't get a chance to donate before the 2014 fundraiser ended? That's ok! Contact adamsfoodpolicy@gmail.com 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!!

Read more about our "food gap" initiative, Healthy Options.

And, take a look at the community-based research done on the 2012 Healthy Options season, written in conjunction with ACFPC members, local academics, and the participants involved in the program.

Contact: adamsfoodpolicy@gmail.com if you or someone you know is facing food insecurity, yet are not quite eligible for federal food assistance programs (annual income between 160%-250% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines), and would like to learn more about Healthy Options.
