Volunteers are the Heart of HEART
Connect through HEART to staff the market during open hours or work behind the scene to nourish our neighbors to flourish.
Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. -Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Healthy Food Matters
Healthy nutritious foods can lead to improved health outcomes & mitigated healthcare costs
Doctors prescribe fresh produce instead of pills to fight diabetes.
