If you haven't heard... We are ecstatic to announce that Fresno Metro Ministry is 1 of 26 grant recipients (only two in CA) out of 528 applicants, funded by The Kresge Foundation to support our "Building the Better Blackstone CDC through Food Oriented Placemaking" project!
Dubbed "FreshLo" - for "Fresh, Local & Equitable: Food as a Creative Platform for Neighborhood Revitalization" - the initiative is a joint effort by Kresge's Arts & Culture Program and Health Program to develop food-oriented initiatives in cities across the nation.
Imagine Building a Better Blackstone...
Join us this Saturday, April 9 from 10am - 1pm at the Lowell Garden Party! Bring your family and friends to tour the garden, participate in planting activities for families, learn about Hunger Action Day and enjoy music and delicious fruit and vegetable samples from OOOOBY.
