"My Neighbor's Table" will address food insecurity for families in Grand Prairie, Texas who are considered homeless. These families live in motels and often lack the necessary resources to provide nutritional meals for their families. Our group of youth will plant a garden, maintain the garden and donate the harvest to these families. In addition, through a partnership with a local community garden, our youth will assist in educating these families on how to grow their own "garden in a bag." Despite limited available space, the "garden in a bag" approach allows families to learn a practical skill to reduce food insecurity in their household.
