Explore New Opportunities w/ the Garrett County Harvest Hub!

The need to alleviate food insecurity, reduce obesity rates, and enhance the health of Garrett County residents is so pressing that every effort must be made to address it now! Applying innovative, fresh approaches and harnessing untapped opportunities is at the core of the Population Health, Innovation & Informatics unit within the Garrett County Health Department. The Garrett County Harvest Hub is no exception. Winning yet another competitive funding award, our team continues to create opportunities to strengthen our local economy, create access for vulnerable populations, and cultivate a community of collaboration.

1) We’re calling on local farmers who have a passion for growing and raising foods that support healthy communities.

2) We’re calling on community members who value local foods, grown by our neighbors and friends.

3) We’re calling on the helpers who want to serve vulnerable community members who are food insecure.

If you fall into one of those three categories, this may be the right fit for you!

About the Garrett County Harvest Hub:
