Supporting Healthy Harvest Food Bank

On September 9, Pam Collins and Terrie Dustin of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Rappahannock (UUFR) were given a tour of the new Healthy Harvest Food Bank (HHFB) by president Mark Kleinschmidt and vice president Cynthia Balderson. 

The HHFB is celebrating its second year in its new facility in Warsaw and is just bursting with enthusiasm for the existing programs that serve six counties and the new programs that will benefit both children and adults by way of educational field trips and classes for students from fourth grade through community college, reported Dustin.   

Collins has led the support for the HHFB in the UUFR in years past and was amazed at HHFB’s successful coordination of 30 partner agencies to meet the present day needs and the forethought and planning to make future educational dreams come true, said Dustin.  

For a glimpse of the fantastic possibilities in areas like aquaponics and hydroponics and solar energy, go to hhfb.org for a magical tour and consider volunteer and support programs that benefit everyone, said Dustin. Following the words of the HHFB hero Walt Disney, “If you can dream it you can do it.”
