Help Teens Promote Healthy Food Access in NYC
 
We offer a unique solution to the lack of healthy food access in New York City food deserts. In Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn--where obesity rates are high and healthy food options are limited-we provide a service learning program for teen volunteer teams to build and maintain a hydroponic farm in an elementary school classroom. The farm serves as a source of fresh produce for the school's 600 families and a community outreach hub promoting healthy, sustainable practices for at-risk residents. project reportread updates from the field
