The Problem

Many changes have occurred in our environments and food insecurity is more noticeable. Families are concerned about where their food is coming from and whether nutritional value has been reduced before it can get to their table.

Our Plan

That being said our organization intends to support the families of youth participants in our program with starter kits and potting ideas to begin their own gardens at home and reduce the level of food insecurity for youth in our community.This year we will be providing families with tomato plants and indoor lemon trees so that youth and their families can engage in the food sustainability process. This will teach youth a lot about planting and environments that are conducive to growth. We are providing online instruction to participants and checking in weekly
