Corbin Hill Food Project: Farm Shares Distribution
Thanks to the gracious generosity of the Harlem Wellness Center and their partnership with the Corbin Hill Food Project, we had the opportunity to distribute 30 boxes of fresh produce to the seniors who are part of our screening program.
September 23, 2020
Seniors from the Jackie Robinson Senior Center of Grant Houses and Manhattanville PSS Senior Center of Manhattanville Houses received their farm share on Wednesday morning. This program is set to continue for the duration of 5 weeks, which allows for us to still connect with our senior community given the circumstances posed by the pandemic.
Many thanks to Founder and Executive Director of the Harlem Wellness Center, Mrs. Vivian Williams-Kurutz, who has been a crucial partner in our efforts towards connecting with the West Harlem community.
