1 Step 2 Health Foundation
Organized by: Andrea Boozer
Event Name: VCU Broad Street Mile 2016
1 Step 2 Health foundation is raising funds for a Urban Garden Program Inside Garden Nursery in our food desert areas of the RVA. This program will be for our homeless and low income familes. The objective is to be able to distribute fresh fruit and vegetables to families for free who do not have access to fresh fruit and vegetables due to transportation and income and to prepare healthier meals for the homeless. Currently land has been donated for us to began our first Pods this fall. We are currently looking for a building in the food desert areas to create our 1st indoor Urban Market Nursery so families will have close access to get fresh fruits and vegetables for free. We will also be using the program to train families how to prepare healthier meals by incorporating fresh fruits and vegatables along with training to shop on a low budget with cooking presentations and food samlings. (hands on cell mobile training for the entire family including the children) Also, we will be educating families how to improve their life expectancy from all chronic diseases through our 2nd program which is under construction which is our Health, Fitness and Nutritional Program. We will be doing a trial run on September 17th, 2016 at monroe park for our first program. so come out to support us!
