Support the CHC through Annie B’s

The CHC needs your support to “grow” its popular farm-to-school fresh food programs in all interested schools in Butte, Glenn, and Tehama Counties. Each $30 gift made to the CHC through the Annie B’s campaign provides one month of services per classroom.

Our research shows a 50 percent increase in vegetable consumption among students who learn about fresh produce through our Harvest of the Month and similar programs. So educating our kids about the importance of fresh, healthy foods clearly pays off. But right now the CHC lacks the funding to offer this popular program for requesting schools.

Help us help our schools offer their students solid nutrition education and exposure to healthy, wholesome fresh foods from an early age.
