WHITEHOUSE - In 2013, Bittersweet Farms received a generous grant from the United States Department of Agriculture to expand the horticulture program.
One of the goals and outcomes of that grant has been to increase community interaction of Bittersweet participants with members of the community. Bittersweet Farms has collaborated with a local church and local food pantries to share fresh produce with low income, community members.
Participants from the Bittersweet Pemberville Transition Program volunteer at the Anthony Wayne Food Pantry, carrying groceries to cars. On average, the participants volunteer 96 hours per year at the food pantry.
Other volunteers serve a variety of projects around Whitehouse and Northwest Ohio. These collaborations with the community have built a strong sense of confidence and self-esteem for Bittersweet Farms participants who are all diagnosed with autism.
