NORWAY – The board of the Stephens Community Healthcare Foundation recently announced the award of two grants in the Oxford Hills region.

The Stephens Community Healthcare Foundation awarded $2,250 to the 2015 Edible Main Street Program. An Edible Main Street along downtown Norway will complement the community’s efforts to improve eating habits and increase accessibility to local, nutritious food.

The program is modeled after the Incredible Edible in Todmorden, England.

The second grant was awarded to SAD 17 Oxford Hills Middle School for the 2015 Pay It Forward 5K Race.
