Each year, the Partnership for Better Health invests more than $2 million in grants and initiatives to advance the health of our region. As a community health foundation, thousands of lives have been touched by our work.
We strive to create sustainable solutions to some of today’s toughest health challenges. Our major goals are to promote healthy lifestyles and increase access to affordable, quality health care throughout parts of Cumberland, Perry, Adams and Franklin Counties. We are proud to support The Greater Carlisle Project and value it as an opportunity to join with many others in creating a more livable community.
We are a church that highly values being partnered and connected within our community. We want to build bridges and seek opportunities to support and encourage community agencies and groups who are working to build a better community. As a Church our vision is to be a diverse family of Christ-followers who seek to live out the love, acceptance, hope and healing of Jesus in all areas of our lives.

If you’re looking for delicious, local food and hope to lower your food miles or meet your local farmers personally then visiting the Farmer’s on the Square (FOTS) market is for you! The market is year round – weekly during the summer months and twice a month in the winter. During the summer you can find the vendor’s by following your nose to their setup at 2 N. Hanover Street, right at the intersection of High St. and Hanover. This location was used for open-air markets from 1751 to 1952 and FOTS is the first one to be hosted since! During the winter months you’ll find them arranged inside at Project SHARE on 5 N. Orange St. in Carlisle. All markets occur from 3-7pm on Wednesdays.
FOTS strives to provide fresh, healthy, local food to those who need it most. Many of the vendors have attained third party certifications for their produce including USDA Certified Organic, Certified Naturally Grown, and Food Alliance Certified. With every product you buy you’ll have a farmer’s face to match with it. All their vendors live and work within 50 miles of Carlisle – each one grows, raises, or makes from scratch the food that they sell!
Depending on the season and the available products you can find a amazing array of local produce and other products. Just a few examples include:
Furthermore, FOTS provides the Double Up Food Bucks program to extend the availability of their food to the community. Through the generosity of the Carlisle Area Health and Wellness Foundation, this program doubles the value of dollar benefits for eligible Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) recipients – up to $20 per week per recipient.
Project SHARE is an interfaith cooperative effort which provides food, clothing, nutritional education, and links to programs to empower people in need within the greater Carlisle Area. They promote sustainability initiatives, including education, farming, gleaning, recycling, and many others.
The Dickinson College Farm is a 180-acre certified organic farm in Boiling Springs that provides many different opportunities for students and community members, including working or volunteering at the farm, completing independent research at the farm, educational programs and workshops, events, and much more!
