Summer Newsletter Reports on the Healthy Eating Initiative

So far in 2017, 456 Poverty Simulation participants have spent an hour facing the challenges of a person in poverty. At the end of the simulation, when asked for one word to describe their experience, they say stressful, overwhelming, and opinion-changing. Learn more about the Poverty Simulations under Advocacy on the above menu.
Dixie Classic Fair Food Drive
On Wednesday, October 4, we will again be at all the Dixie Classic Fair gates collecting food for our food pantries. For every 5 non-perishable food items you donate, you receive a ticket to get into the fair! Look for the big white trucks and CCM volunteers in green t-shirts right outside of the gates.
