Yesterday we had the pleasure of hosting the City Year Jacksonville AmeriCorps members for a tour of the Jacksonville Farmers Market. They were impressed with our huge variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and more. They even did some shopping to take advantage of our low prices.
If you aren’t familiar with City Year, it’s a nationwide organization working to bridge the gap in high-poverty communities between the support that students need, and what their schools are designed and resourced to provide. Their work is helping to increase graduation rates across the country, and change the lives of the students they serve.
