We collaborate 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.
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.
Our current and future success of providing our at-risk community members with access to healthy locally grown produce is only possible by the continued generosity of our donors.
