Harvest for Healthy Kids (HHK) began as a collaboration between Portland State University and Mt. Hood Community College Head Start and Early Head Start. The project would not have been possible without the early insights, dedication, and heavy lifting contributed by the following individuals: Betty Izumi, PhD, Pam Greenough Corrie, MS, Jennifer Hallman, BA, Dawn Barberis, EdD, Amanda Peden, Brie Stott, Bill Ries, Sandy Nimz, and Angela Capello.
Harvest for Healthy Kids has also benefited, and continues to benefit, from the guidance and support of many individuals and the following organizations:

Mt. Hood Community College Head Start and Early Head Start, Portland State University, Food Services of America, Oregon Health & Sciences University, Child Care Resource and Referral of Multnomah County, Ecotrust, and Dancing Roots Farm. Thank you.

HHK is currently managed and maintained by a passionate group of individuals at Mt. Hood Community College Head & Early Start Program.
