‘Help them live the best life’

A trip to Vance County Regional Farmers Market on Wednesday was just the beginning of a much larger project for a group of area residents.

Twelve individuals receiving services through Community Workforce Solutions visited the farmers market to learn where food comes from and about the process of growing produce.

Community Pathways coordinator Maxine Sheftal said the trip was a way to integrate the individuals Community Workforce Solutions serves with the larger community.

“We work with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and help them live the best life,” she said. “They were excited to come out here today. They couldn’t wait to leave.”
