Nanticoke’s Healing Harvest inpatient food closet will continue with their goal of standing in the gap for food insecure patients thanks to a Community Action Grant from the Gannett Foundation. On Tuesday, December 18, Thomas M. Donovan, Regional President of the Gannett East Newspaper Group, presented a check to Nanticoke Health Foundation Executive Director, Renee’ Morris, in the amount of $5000.
Patients who are admitted to the hospital are often very sick. If they do not have food when they are discharged home, it makes it difficult for them to continue their recovery process. While many community food assistance programs already exist, it may take a patient who is recovering from a hospital stay a little time to connect to these resources. That’s where the Healing Harvest food closet steps in to help.
