Franklinton FoodHealth&Wellness_Urban Farm Fundraising
 
 
 
The Franklinton Food-Health-Wellness Corps is a 10-member, neighborhood-based, AmeriCorps VISTA project that builds community-food-system capacity with community organizations that serve in Columbus, Ohio's west-side neighborhood of Franklinton. Franklinton is one of Columbus' most underserved communities, and many residents are adversely impacted by various economic, environmental, and social issues. Approximately 15% of residents are unemployed, 66% of households live at or below the poverty line, and more than 50% of residents experience some level of food insecurity. The VISTA program will involve VISTA members working with a wide range of social service agencies throughout Franklinton to help build the capacity of food-health-wellness initiatives throughout the Franklinton neighborhood. Service sites include an urban farm, a hospital affiliated health and wellness center, a family housing stabilization agency, an Episcopal faith community, and a community bicycle shop.This VISTA position is hosted by Franklinton Gardens (FG). FG is a nonprofit urban farm that is dedicated to growing and sharing food, creating beauty, and building community with neighbors. FG operates a network of food production sites, manages a community food distribution system, and hosts various educational programs and community events. The VISTA will work primarily on fundraising efforts to support the farm, and work will generally be supervised by the Executive Director and Board Members. Activities will include grant writing, general fundraising resource development, donor database development, fundraising event planning, and grant reporting.
