Get kids in the U.S. to eat more veggies to prevent obesity

from 25.00

We've sparked real community engagement for the first time for our partners at The Growing Experience, an urban farm in Long Beach. Initially our research showed that people were eating very unhealthy foods, were unfamiliar with the farm (which was just next-door), and they were unfamiliar with its produce. So we enlisted community-members to help us hold a community-wide cook-off event last year, and then we enabled our partners do it for themselves this year. Now hundreds of families and children who attended not only know about the farm, but hold favorable impressions towards the farm and have eaten their vegetables. Many have gone on to continue obtaining fresh produce from their farm. Our partners now face staffing and budget challenges, so with your gift, we'll be able to keep supporting them in the coming year. You would be helping us to keep momentum, and not lose ground with what we've achieved to date.

We track 100% of our expenses, and report progress quarterly.
