March 10, 2016–Faith Farm Ministries received a $ 32,000 grant from Health Foundation of South Florida that will go toward upgrading commercial kitchen equipment, increasing food service capacity and providing healthier menu options at the Ministries’ Fort Lauderdale Campus.

According to Faith Farm Ministries’ Executive Director, Dean O. Webb, “This grant, ‘Food Service Improvement for a Model Rescue Mission,’ advances our ability to help those who are working to rebuild their lives from the devastating effects of drugs and alcohol.” He added, “The funding also enhances our vocational school’s ‘Food Service’ track for students entering the food service industry upon graduation. The new equipment maintains our eligibility to receive food stamps on behalf of program recipients as a certified State of Florida Department of Children and Families approved location, and enables menus to be produced with an emphasis on nutrition as the grant provides for a nutritionist to be contracted.”

Providing healthy meals increases morale of students at the campus. For students going through their nine month regeneration program, meals are a source of morale since they are on a strict schedule with limited privileges. Having nutritious, appealing food selections are critical during the addiction recovery process since students often substitute food for drugs, alcohol and cigarettes.
