Farm to Fork Market & Gala on September 21, 2019 at the Town and Country Centre is a fundraiser for Children’s Cottage Crisis Nursery , who help relieve the stress for children ages 0-8 whose family are in a crisis. 

Here is Jazmine’s story:
“My childhood was surrounded by domestic violence, addictions, and poverty. My mother tried her best, but getting away from my father proved to be a challenge. Wherever we went, he would find us. My mother’s drug addiction became the most important thing in her life and I never knew what I would walk into when I came home from school. I spent countless nights at the Children’s Cottage - it became a second home for me where I was welcomed with a smile, ate warm meals, and saw loving, caring adults. It was a refuge from what was happening at home and allowed me time to just be a kid. I’m now nearly 30 and have broken the chains of poverty and overcome my upbringing. My children will not have the same life I did! Thank you Crisis Nursery for the role you played in making my childhood safe and helping me become the woman I am today!”
