Thank you to our Groupon Grassroots supporters!

Our Groupon Grassroots campaign met and surpassed it's goal of providing 2 weeks of summer Marketeers activities!

A big thank you to everyone who supported our Groupon Grassroots campaign. We raised $420 for our Marketeers program, which we could not have done without you. The Marketeer Club hosts engaging children’s activities focused on fresh food and nutrition, engaging children in age appropriate (and fun) activities! The club’s summer program will teach children about regional foods, nutrition, and other ways food impacts their lives. The program aims to reach 100–200 children each week during the summer. The money raised will fund at least 3 weeks of programming. You, our supporters, enable us to continue our work and we are so grateful. Many thanks!
