Since the startup of the Greenwood Ave. Farmers Market in June 2015, Michelle Brill, Family and Community Health Sciences Educator, Amanda Skahan Grasso, Miss Snow, and volunteer Barbara Inman-Clark from the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Mercer County have educated numerous Trenton families about nutrition and healthy eating on a weekly basis. From curly kale slaw to fruit kabobs, you’ll find Michelle and her team preparing and hosting food tasting sessions—all to promote recipes that contribute to a healthier way of life.
In recognition of this innovative partnership with the Greenwood Ave. Farmers Market, Michelle Brill received national, state and regional awards from the National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (NEAFCS). Presented during NEAFCS’s annual conference in Big Sky, Montana in the Fall of 2016, the award recognized Brill for her efforts in building community partnerships to meet the educational needs and concerns of families.
“Michelle and her team have made such an impact on our ability to make the healthy choice the easy choice for Trenton families,” said Marissa Davis, NJPHK-Trenton. “Congratulations on a job well done.”SHARE:
