Community Harvest Project is a non-profit farm that engages volunteers to grow fresh fruits and vegetables to provide to those experiencing hunger. Through their volunteer farming programs, education initiatives, and community partnerships, they bring thousands of community members together each year to improve access to healthy foods for individuals and families in need across Worcester County.

Rozie Schleinig

Rozie got her start in local food in high school, working in the store at Ward’s Berry Farm (right up the street from Red Tomato’s offices). After graduating from Rhodes College, Rozie stayed in Memphis, TN, working as the assistant manager for Bring It Food Hub.  Homesick for snowy winters and the Rhode Island coastline, Rozie moved back to apprentice on a farm Massachusetts. In early 2016 she joined Red Tomato as a Supply Chain Associate, where she now facilitates the Direct Store Delivery program and helps to grow Red Tomato’s capacity to deliver delicious produce to stores and institutions throughout New England.

In addition to her work at Red Tomato, Rozie serves on the New England Farm & Sea to Campus Supply Chain Development Working Group. and serves on the Rhode Island Food Policy Council!
