🌱 Our Journey: From Winchendon to Gardner
The HEAL Collaborative, born in Winchendon, is the foundation of our initiative. It began as a shared dream for equitable food access and social inclusivity in 2017 and flourished with the support of the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission's MassUP investment. Fast forward to 2023, our journey has expanded into Gardner, transforming into a comprehensive, community-driven movement.
