With the highest obesity rate in the country, the city of Bell Gardens struggles to keep their citizens healthy. The main location of The Family Health Care Centers of Greater Los Angeles is located in Bell Gardens and has been providing health care services to an under-served population for many years. The struggle gets harder and harder each year. We just purchased a new building and need funds to our programs going. We our proud of one particular program called "The Campaign for a Healthier Bell Gardens". Here is the video: <iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/48016432" width="400" height="300" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>
This project helped create a garden in each of the schools in Bell Gardens. Children would plant and cultivate vegetables and plants throughout the year and then sell the good (to sustain the projects) at the local farmers market. As of June 30, 2013 we could no longer sustain this program. This is one of the many projects we need funding for. If you can find it in your heart to help the FHCCGLA with a donation, we would much appreciate it! We welcome anyone who wants to visit or come and tour our facility. Thank you!
