Growing Healthy Communities in Cottonwood, Jackson, Faribault, Martin and Watonwan Counties
It was a lovely night in October when about 110 community leaders from all five counties came together to learn more about how the SHIP program is working with community partners to create healthier communities. Special guest speakers for the evening included:Miss Minnesota Siri Freeh, Senator Julie Rosen and Deputy Commissioner James Koppel. Several community members also had time to share their story of how SHIP funds are making a difference in their community or organization. The program also featured a menu of 12 foods from 12 different local growers/producers in the area. Thank you to everyone who attended, to the local growers for providing the food, to our wonderful community partners and speakers!!
