Team #1 supported the Waltham Fields Community Farm by planting 2600 eggplant and weeding the chive beds. The Farm provides the community access to fresh, organic and local food and subsequently donates the food to local food aid programs. Access to fresh and affordable food is a key component not only in a healthy, sustainable local food system but also in a healthy sustainable community.
Trinity team #2 supported the Room to Grow Program which is dedicated to enriching the lives of babies born into poverty throughout their critical first three years of development. Parents are referred to Room to Grow by a network of prenatal programs assisting low-income families. Our Trinity volunteers spent the afternoon sorting, organizing and displaying the thousands of donations of baby items in Boston. The opportunity to serve the staff and families was tremendous.
