Fresh produce raised by students right here in the Roanoke Chowan area will be available by next summer thanks to a grant opportunity. Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center (RCCHC) and its partners received a Creating New Economies Fund (CNEF) grant of $8,500 from The Conservation Fund's Resourceful Communities program. This grant will support the implementation of a Farm to School to Healthcare initiative within Hertford County. School gardens will be built utilizing sustainable gardening practices at area schools. Produce will then be sold at a pop-up market located at Ahoskie Comprehensive Care with a discount offered for low-income residents.
