Impact Spotlight: Grant to Primary Health Care
March 23, 2023 at 12:00pm
Primary Health Care and Mustard Seed Farm will be presenting on their partnership at a lunch-and-learn at Primary Health Care (3510 Lincoln Way, Ames). Farm to Clinic was started by a Primary Health Care (PHC) provider for expecting mothers. PHC purchased shares of fresh fruits and vegetables from Mustard Seed Farms. Throughout the years, it has been expanded so all PHC patients can access this healthy food. Come learn more about this impactful partnership - supported by United Way of Story County. Lunch will be provided. Email any dietary restrictions to Kristin at email@example.com.
