Welborn Baptist Foundation awards two-year Healthy Eating Active Living grant to St. Vincent Evansville Foundation
Thanks to a $125,000 grant from the Welborn Baptist Foundation, St. Vincent has created the Healthy Harvest program.

The program will help bring healthy food options such as fresh fruits and vegetables to deserving individuals and families in the Evansville community. Grant funding helped purchase a greenhouse and hydroponic system that will allow for year-round growth of fruits and vegetables at Seton Harvest. The Healthy Harvest program would not be possible with the help of our partners such as Seton Harvest, Society of St. Vincent dePaul - Evansville, and local homeless shelters and schools.

The first planting from the hydroponic system recently took place. The fruits and vegetables will be grown at Seton Harvest and then distributed through the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry, homeless shelters, the Seton Harvest Vegetable Delivery Truck and various other outlets, including school backpack programs.
On December 19 we celebrated the generosity of Bill and Mary O'Daniel Stone with a groundbreaking ceremony for the Patricia Browning Stone Sensory Playground. Their transformational gift will fund a new state-of-the-art indoor therapeutic sensory playground for young patients who are cared for at St. Vincent Center for Children on the campus of St. Vincent Evansville. The playground is named in honor of Bill’s mother, Patricia Browning Stone, who was a graduate of the St. Mary’s School of Nursing.

A special thank you to Dr. Mark Browning for providing the video recording of the groundbreaking ceremony.
