Food Access + Nutrition Education are our PRIORITIES!

 

Urban Seed Foundation is a nonprofit fundraising organization  commited to providing access to fresh local produce and nutrition education to local at-risk communities. Our focus is on serving and educating our most critical community sectors including pre-natal single moms, pre-k-12th grade students living in food desert areas, homeless teens and rehabilitating veterans.


We  ollaborate with like-minded community partners to fund local food access and nurtition education programs with an emphasis on practical food decision making skills, food preparation skills, and food growing skills. Our programs include funding school gardens in Las Vegas, student run farmer's markets, STEAM curriculum in public and charter schools, and hands-on learning in other community hubs where at-risk citizens congregate.


 Currently, we are workig with Garden Farms Foundation and Create A Change to support ongoing  curriculum, new garden,youth fitness, nutrition and education programming throughout the Las Vegas valley. 


Your generosity empowers us to look beyond the challenges of food insecurity and inspires our full effort into creating healthy solutions for the many in need Nevadans we serve together. We are deeply humbled and privileged to be a source of food access and nutrition education in Las Vegas -- the community that is in the center of our mission. 


We will keep you updated on the exciting progress.  Please support Urban Seed Foundation in Las Vegas today! Every dollar counts. Please donate generously.
