For the past two years, The Village Food Project has brought nourishment and care to individuals and their families who have been touched by cancer. The response to this service has been remarkable, demonstrating an overwhelming opportunity to support those with cancer and a strong desire to come together as a community in service.

In order to continue growth, and clearly reflect its purpose, on Feb. 21 The Village Food Project reestablished and incorporated as the Village Project. The mission: “To come together as a community of all ages to provide nourishing meals and extended care and service to our neighbors experiencing cancer,” will be the driving force of this newly formed endeavor. 

We are dedicated to continue serving nourishing meals to our neighbors battling cancer and equally devoted to increasing services and support for the patient and the entire family. All involved continue to look forward to sharing our long-term vision as it continues to develop.  

Executive Director Barb Harrell is happy to welcome board members: Terry Cariglio, John Engelbrecht, Loren McKeon, Jean Prokes and Ann Paras.
