Program Updates / COVID-19

Dear Mill City Grows Friends and Supporters,
 
Now more than ever, all of us at Mill City Grows are dedicated to fostering a healthy community and ensuring the well-being of our program participants, volunteers, and team members.

We understand that the health risks of COVID-19 effect all families differently. In an effort to protect the health and safety of all of our community members equally, we are following recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and statewide authorities in our programming planning. Our staff is taking all necessary precautions by amending the delivery and format of our events and programs.

Please see the important information below which outlines the changes we are making and support we’re providing to make certain these programs remain as accessible as possible to our community, while also minimizing gatherings of groups. We encourage you to stay in touch with us on FacebookTwitterInstagram, and this web page for any updates to our programming, and to please share our information with your friends, family, and community members.

If you have any questions or comments about any of this information, please contact me directly at Jessica@millcitygrows.org or call our office at 978-455-2620.

Our entire Mill City Grows family remains dedicated to you and our mission to increase healthy food access in our community. We wish you and your loved ones all our very best in the days ahead.

Jessica Moore-Wilson
Executive Director
