Each year Community Harvest Project relies on generous donations from community grantors to keep our programs running. Last year was no exception and in 2017 our grants supported a large range of CHP’s work, from operating support to specific equipment or programs.
Many exciting projects were made possible by these corporate and foundation grants, such as outfitting our new greenhouse with electricity, heat and watering automation. These funds also supported necessary investments in equipment such as repairing our rototiller, purchasing a chisel plow and cultivation tractors. We were also able to plant an experimental crop garden to pilot increasing the varieties we donation.
Thank you to our generous grantors, listed below, who ensure that CHP can continue fulfilling our mission. In 2017, your grant support helped enable CHP to donate 1,130,496 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables through 15 local community partners serving 90,000 individuals and families. 8,456 community volunteers of all ages helped us get the work done.
