The Healthy Asian Pacific Islander Fresh Program (HAPI Fresh) provides farm training to enhance job opportunities for immigrants and refugees in Cuyahoga County. HAPI Fresh currently works with limited English proficient individuals from Africa, Bhutan, and Burma to enhance and supplement their farming skills for the purpose of self-sufficiency. The program provides agricultural job training through farming and management education while providing healthy, locally-grown ethnic produce to Northeast Ohioans. Ultimately, HAPI Fresh helps participants by reducing or even eliminating employment barriers and improving literacy and employment-related skills.
The HAPI Fresh Program is funded by Cuyahoga County’s Refugee Employment and Training Services, United Way of Great Cleveland, the Cleveland Foundation and Deaconess Community Foundation; with additional support from Ohio State University Extension, Burten, Bell, Carr Development, Inc., and West Creek Preservation Committee. HAPI Fresh is part of the largest cooperative farming program in United States.
