WWG honored with
2014 Martin Luther King Jr.
Community Service Award
For over twenty one years, the Rollins School of Public has honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Service Awards Program. The genesis of this celebration grew out of dialogue in 1993 between Dr. Joyce Essien and then Dean of the School of Public Health, Ray Greenburg, where they agreed that it was time to align the mission and values of Public Health with the precepts of social justice. 2014 honorees were selected as a tribute to the work they do to bring communities together toward justice, even in the face of seemingly entrenched divisions.
On Thursday, January 23, 2014 at Rollins School of Public Health, Wholesome Wave Georgia was awarded a 2014 Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Award for their work empowering historically excluded urban and rural communities to make healthier food choices by increasing access to and affordability of local, fresh foods.
