The Problem

City kids like many adults face food scarcity and limited access to healthy locally grown fresh and healthy veggies. We have a thriving urban farm literally right in our back yard, but many community members don't know we exist or even that membership is virtually free.

Our Plan

Create a kids-centered cookbook of their favorite foods made with locally grown fresh veggies from our community urban farm. By getting kids involved in healthy eating, they can support their families in making simple but impactful life and nutritional changes too.
