Volunteers are the Heart of HEART
HEART is looking for dedicated volunteers
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

Doctors prescribe fresh produce instead of pills to fight diabetes.
(Columbus Dispatch: Logan County Medical Practice’s preferred prescription is produce, not pills)
HEART is part of Mid-Ohio Farmacy, welcoming neighbors in Franklin County with a doctor’s prescription to shop for fresh produce once a week.
HEART serves hungry, food insecure neighbors.
