Farmory Project Receives CCHD Funding for Innovative Benefits
Perch — it’s a mainstay of the Friday night fish fry in northeast Wisconsin, especially during Lent.
But who knew that the perch could also provide a leg up to people striving to work their way out of poverty.
Eric Weydt, Catholic Social Justice Coordinator with the Diocese of Green Bay, had a hunch and he was right. It was Weydt who encouraged a community endeavor called The Farmory, located at 815 Chicago St. in Green Bay, to apply for a Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) grant. As a result, The Farmory applied for and received grants over the past three years totaling $145,000 from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ anti-poverty campaign.
