Yes, it’s Orange Day with The Food Trust

Two months into assignment here in Philadelphia and two Orange Days accomplished.  At The Food Trust I have been able to share with GSK HR team members what actually goes on at my NGO.  In July we partnered with HYPE team (Healthy You Positive Energy) clean up at neighborhood community garden then on to middle school for Ad Campaign project.  Yesterday we met at The Food Trust office to assemble Philly Food Bucks -program that supports 30 Farmers Markets customers with $2.00 coupons for fruits and vegetables.  Then onto Clark Park Farmers’ Market to see how the program works.

It was a beautiful day and market shoppers were out purchasing fruits and vegetables.  The Food Trust sponsors an interactive cooking demonstration including education on healthy food options.  The team follow up with survey and distributes Philly Food Bucks to participants – they can then spend them at market.  Orange Day team jumped right -interacting with customers and staff.  Also doing a little shopping for their evening meal!  Thanks to all the GSK Orange Day participants – keep spreading the health benefits Message -Eating Healthy Helps.
