CDPHP® Workforce Team Challenge Gives $12,000 to Capital District Community Gardens
Date:8/19/2013

Albany, NY (PRWEB) August 19, 2013

Capital Region residents will continue to have access to fresh food and green spaces thanks to support from the CDPHP® Workforce Team Challenge. Today, race organizers presented a check to Capital District Community Gardens in the amount of $12,352 to support the organization’s mission to nourish healthy communities.

CDCG was one of two local not-for-profits selected as a “charity of choice” to benefit from monies raised from the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge, the largest annual road race between NYC and Utica. The event is organized by, and serves as a major fundraiser for, the Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club (HMRRC), one of the largest running clubs in the nation.

CDCG operates eight programs, all of which nourish the region’s communities by providing access to fresh food and green spaces for all. CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge donation will support four of the non-profit’s programs: Community Gardens, The Produce Project, Squash Hunger, and The Taste Good Series.

The organization manages 49 Community Gardens, where 4,000 of the region’s residents are growing their own organic food. The Produce Project is a year-round job training program, through which CDCG creates academic and employment opportunities for Troy High School students by engaging them in the cultivation of crops on three acres of urban farmland. Squash Hunger is a fresh food donation initiative, through which CDCG collects more than 11 tons of produce each year and delivers it to shelters and pantries throughout the Capital District. The Taste Good Series is a six-week-long, nutrition education program for inner-city children in preschool through second grade.

“Fresh fruit and vegetables are an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Capital District Community Gardens is working to improve the health of our co
