It’s AmeriCorps Week! We’re so grateful for the AmeriCorps VISTA members who serve with us. They’re an integral part of our work and our team here at Farm Fresh Rhode Island. We couldn’t do it without you:

AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 Americans in intensive service each year at 21,600 unique sites including nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country. Since the program’s founding in 1994, more than 1 million AmeriCorps members have contributed more than 1.4 billion hours in service across America while tackling pressing problems and mobilizing more than 2.3 million volunteers for the organizations they serve.
What’s AmeriCorps VISTA?
AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members bring their passion and perseverance where the need is greatest: to organizations that help eradicate poverty. The most pressing challenges we face as a nation require the most courageous and creative people to address them. An AmeriCorps VISTA member serves as a catalyst for change, living and working alongside community members to advance local solutions.
AmeriCorps Week is a celebration of all things AmeriCorps & the people and programs who have committed to “Get Things Done” in thousands of locations across the country since the program’s inception in 1994.
