HeartLove Place was featured on Fox 6 News about the garden program and how it teaches children about healthy food choices and responsibility through gardening. Under the leadership of HeartLove resident, “Green Thumb” Dorothy McBride, the children grew and reaped the harvest of their labor this summer! Green beans, squash, cucumbers, and tomatoes made for a great meal. The garden program is supported through a grant from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation – Summer Grants for Kids.
On Wednesday, August 11, fifteen adults graduated from the ProStart Culinary & Job Readiness Program. 100% of the class passed the ServSafe examination, certifying them as food safety managers!For the first time, TWO ProStart classes are being offered in the fall – one at HeartLove Place and the other through a partnership with the Social Development Commission at their Teutonia Ave. site. Graduation for both classes takes place in December.
This ProStart program is funded through a generous donation from Bader Philanthropies and the Social Development Commission. Other partners include Word of Hope Ministries, City of Milwaukee, and ResCare.
More than 500 bookbags filled with school supplies were distributed to children on Saturday, August 20th. Thanks to our sponsors and supporters of the 16th Annual Back to School Family Rally!
