AmeriCorps VISTA helps raise $49,905 in Mansfield

OCDCA AmeriCorps VISTA member, Vickie Eichof, aided in grant writing for the recent award of $49,905 to the North End Community Improvement Collaborative in Mansfield. The organization will hold a weekly farmers market where they will offer SNAP incentives and launch their teaching garden, fully outfitted with raised beds, cold frames and tools needed, plus monies for instructors and expansion. The efforts of the North End Local Foods Initiative, which include the North End Farmers’ Market and the teaching garden being opened this year, are supported by the Fran and Warren Rupp Donor Advised Fund of the Richland County Foundation.
