The Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (HNRCA) partners with the Massachusetts Horticultural Society on a Community Vegetable Garden in the lobby of their building, donating the freshly grown vegetables and herbs to our kitchen.

This partnership ensures that here at St. Francis House, we are able to consistently provide vital high quality nutrition to our dining room guests. Their most recent delivery included thirteen pounds of radishes, turnips, a variety of lettuces, and chard!
