Gateway Community Action Partnership recently received a $2,500 grant from Investors Foundation. The grant will help further Gateway’s mission of providing services that improve the quality of life and promote self-sufficiency by ¬allowing for increased production at our Mill Creek Urban Farm in Bridgeton, NJ. “This funding from the Investors Foundation will allow us to increase production and distribution at our Mill Creek Urban Farm,” said Albert B. Kelly, CCAP, President and CEO of Gateway Community Action Partnership. “ Much of the produce grown at our farm is distributed among those in our communities who are in need. And amid the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the need for emergency food locally has never been greater. “ This grant from the Investors Foundation is certainly welcomed and much appreciated,” Kelly said.
