We were able to reach 1,500 more Philadelphia area students this year by expanding our programs to more schools and community centers. Meanwhile, we are developing innovative new programs, like Vetri Cooking Lab and the Mobile Teaching Kitchen, which will allow us to reach our community in new ways. As we grow, we continue to focus on our mission of empowering children and families to lead healthy lives through fresh food, hands-on experiences and education. Thank you for your support as we continue on this journey of ensuring that all children have the nutritional foundation they need to grow and thrive. Sincerely, Marlene L. Olshan, CEO Vetri Community Partnership 1
