aramark-building-community-1024x1024Aramark’s Building Community (ABC) is a community involvement initiative where employees lend a hand to various local centers and projects to help strengthen and enrich lives. On Tuesday, September 20, the Greenwood Ave. Farmers Market was one of the stops Aramark employee volunteers made to support the market’s effort in promoting healthier living. As part of the project, volunteers built a farmer’s market stand; built, painted and planted flower beds, designed customer tote bags, and even sketched activities for kids on the blacktop.

“We are so happy to see that Aramark is aligned with promoting access to healthy food and safer play areas for residents of the city of Trenton,” said Marissa Davis, project director for the New Hersey Partnership for Healthy Kids. Through the ABC grant, the YMCA was funded $5,000 to purchase essential supplies to help sustain the market’s value. Aramark started their Building Community Day back in April 2008 and you can visit their website for more information.
