Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids (HFHK) is looking for Board Members and volunteers to help with promotion and implementation of our growing program.  We are a state leader in school garden programs with a vision to inspire and motivate youth to develop lifelong wholesome eating habits by experiencing the joy of growing, cooking, and eating garden-fresh vegetables.  In fact, we are the only organization in Delaware that works with public schools to design and implement hands-on and curriculum-based vegetable gardening programs, that operate during school hours, fit into the academic year, and support the existing Delaware science curriculum.

About Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids:
HFHK is currently in its eighth year and works with 21 public schools serving approximately 7,500 students.  HFHK vegetable gardening programs run during the school day & school year, and involve EVERY child in hands-on gardening activities each semester.  HFHK is a state leader in school garden programs and was recently selected to be the only Delaware recipient of the first-ever National Farm to School (FTS) grant awarded by USDA Food and Nutrition Service to increase children’s consumption of produce in school cafeterias by connecting schools with local farms, and by creating educational opportunities.

If you enjoy strategic planning, fundraising, special events, program implementation, grant writing, or social media, and feel that Delaware children would benefit from hands on learning that helps them to develop healthier eating habits, please consider becoming a part of Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids.  Contact us at Info@Healthyfoodsforhealthykids.org to find out more about our organization or to visit our next Board meeting.

City Fare is looking for volunteers to deliver Meals on Wheels to homebound seniors throughout New Castle County. We deliver over 800 meals daily, and add new clients each week. With over 40 daily delivery  routes, we rely heavily on volunteers. These volunteers are our eyes and our ears. Not only do they provide a hot meal to the homebound clients, but they are sometimes the only interaction the client will have all day. Volunteers report back to us if something seems wrong with the client, and family members are happy that someone is checking on their loved ones while they are away at work. It is a truly rewarding experience, and volunteers immediately see their impact on City Fare clients.

We are in desperate need of additional volunteers to help us deliver meals to our clients. We have 10 pickup sites throughout the county to make pick up and delivery convenient to most homes/workplaces. Scheduling is flexible, and we can accommodate volunteers willing to deliver daily, weekly, or monthly. Please consider enjoying your lunch break helping those in need!

For more information, contact Katie Soja, Volunteer Coordinator at (302) 421-3731 OR KatieSoja@cityfare.org
