The Problem

Through its program Project G.R.A.P.E. (Growing Readily Available Produce Everywhere), EBLLC, Inc. seeks to provide out-of-school educational opportunities for disadvantaged youth to learn about gardening and its importance in reducing the effects of child hunger and food insecurity.

Our Plan

Youth participants will be involved in creating the gardens while learning everything that goes into sustaining a food garden. Youth participants will also be given the opportunity to evaluate the skills and knowledge gained in this program. Some of the feedback that will be given back from these youth will be: what\'s one topic that they learned, what\'s one action they can do to combat child hunger, and how can Project G.R.A.P.E. improve in informing students about current issues in their school district in relation to child hunger. These questions and others will be utilized to make improvements to the program, and thelikelihood of students using the skills they learned while participating in Project G.R.A.P.E.
