Faces of FACCES October 2023: Aseylean Brown 

We would like to highlight Ms. Aseylean Brown for the October 2023 Faces of FACCES! Ms. Brown has been participating in the FACCES Urban Garden greenhouse all through the summer with her great grandson and her dog by her side!  “I was born and raised on a farm. We grew our food. I didn’t think I’d use those skills again until I got here.” Ms. Brown shares.  Starting from scratch, Ms. Brown has played a huge part in planting for the summer and harvesting the produce as well. The produce ranges from Cucumbers, Zucchini, Tomatoes, Beans and more! The FACCES Urban Garden tilapia have grown too as we look to begin harvesting them soon.   She now has begun preparing for the Fall harvest, planting seeds both in the greenhouse and outside in the outdoor garden beds.  “You know you don’t have to buy all your food; you can grow it

Faces of FACCES September 2023: Family Gathering Vendors

The September 2023 Faces of FACCES goes to our Fall Family Gathering vendors in partnership with The Center for Healthy Families! The organizations above have committed to helping support the community and families through the resources they provide. Some vendors have previously attended the Family Gatherings and have begun to build connections with those who attend. Other vendors are new to the Family Gathering and look forward to establishing those connections with families! Here’s what a couple of our vendors have to say: Terence B. with AmeriHealth: “We consider the community our family, and we want families to be well taken care of.”  Debra D. with Mid-Ohio Food Collective: “We want people to be excited about healthy eating, we care about families, we want families to be whole. We are here for them.”

Earlier this year Jess was looking for volunteer opportunities with the goal of finding an organization that truly needed a lot of support.   “One thing I’ll always know is that I can count on FACCES Fresh Market to always give back. I always feel comfortable and like I’m welcomed. I’m really starting to meet and build connections in the community; I’m recognizing their faces and their recognizing mine!”  Jess understands that a lot of people don’t feel comfortable about receiving the groceries they need from Fresh Market, so she is passionate about making people smile and providing dignified support for those who attend. In the future Jess is looking forward to finding ways to be hands-on and
