The Problem

There are many students and their families who cannot afford fresh, healthy food. There are also many people in our school neighborhood who would benefit from free, fresh, healthy foods. We want to help reduce the issue of affordable healthy food for families.

Our Plan

We want to host a "Harvest Fest" each year and be able to celebrate and share the food from the school garden with our school community and neighbors. This will be an opportunity to educate others on the sustainable practices we are using at the school and build connections with our community to support one another.
