BENEFITING: PRESBYTERIAN HOMES AND SERVICES INC
The GoFresh! GetHealthy! Initiative (the Inititative) is a comprehensive year-long program providing seniors in Springpoint affordable housing (AH) communities with basic food staples & health care essentials, fresh fruits & vegetables and health & nutrition education. Although government programs exist, barriers to success reveal they are ineffective and insufficient. The Initiative will overcome these barriers by bringing relevant nutrition services to our most needy seniors living at or below the poverty level, where healthy food is difficult to buy and where nutrition information is lacking. This grant will support one of 18 Springpoint AH communities: Friendship Gardens -- Howell, NJ.
