Cape Cod Junior Medical Reserve Corps Garden
In the spring and summer of 2012, an amazing group of Cape Cod Junior Medical Reserve Corps members started and tended a garden to donate fresh produce to area food pantries. Barnstable County Mass In Motion provided just a few hundred dollars for some basic supplies and the young people took it from there. Read about their inspiring project and view photos of the garden: CMRC Garden 2012
Cook Well, Eat Well, Live Well
Cook Well, Live Well, Eat Well is project of Cape Cod Hunger Network with support from Cape Cod Cooperative Extension Nutrition Education Program and Bilezikian Family Foundation, 2011. This is a wonderful resource that steers us towards healthy food choices and is available to food pantries and others across Cape Cod. Barnstable County Mass In Motion has been pleased to contribute resources to help support printing of the Cook Well, Live Well, Eat Well cookbook and for kits so trained volunteers can offer cooking demonstrations at food pantries. (This links with objective #3: to increase availability of healthier food options at the Cape Cod Hunger Network’s approximately 30 member food pantries and meal programs.)
