Community Foundation Supports Project Fresh
FCEC recently received a $2,660 grant from the Catalina Starlight Fund through the Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation for the support of the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program. The program provides vouchers to income-eligible senior citizens Emmet County, which can be redeemed for fresh, locally grown produce at area farmers markets, and provides a series of nutrition classes for enrolled seniors. Vouchers for fresh fruits and vegetables can still be picked up by calling the Petoskey Friendship Center at (231) 347-3211 or (888) 347-0369.
