In this episode, we sit down with Louis Cinquino, Board Chair of Community Action Lehigh Valley. Discover the incredible impact this organization has on our community, its origins, funding, and the areas it touches.
Community Action’s community problem-solving efforts have had long-lasting results, from voter referendums to affordable housing initiatives. Today, it employs nearly 100 workers, boasting a budget of $23 million and owning over $8 million in real estate. Their administrative costs consistently stay under 9% of their annual budget.
We’ll also delve into The Seed Farm, located on a 42-acre site in Emmaus, dedicated to cultivating the next generation of farmers. Offering affordable access to land, equipment, and essential training, The Seed Farm empowers new farmers to start their businesses. From equipment operation to marketing, they provide the skills and knowledge needed for success.
And let’s not forget the vital work of the Second Harvest Food Bank, committed to ending food insecurity in the Lehigh Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania. They provide nutritious food, nutrition education, and dismantle barriers to create access, all while respecting the dignity of our neighbors.
