Summary

We estimate today that there are 926,000 children in Michigan who live in low-income families and are affected by the lack of access to healthy food choices. It is clear decreased access to healthy food results to people in low-income communities to suffer more from diet-related diseases. Our organization is dedicated to the process of awareness and prevention of the alarming rates at which illnesses like diabetes, obesity and mental health affects the minority community, but we need your help!
