BENEFITING: Harvest Home Farmers Market
I started Harvest Home with the vision of providing access to healthy food to low-income residents. However, today we find ourselves not only providing access but educating the public on how to prepare food and eat healthier. Our Eating for Good Health demostartions have become a critical tool to introduce our customers to friuts and vegetables they are not familar with.
- It has been documented that if Amercians increased their consumption of fruits and vegetables to meet dietary recommedations we can save $17 billion in annual national medical costs.
- And, If they increase their daily consumption of fruits and vegetables we would save more than $2.7 trillion in medical cost.
For these reasons, Harvest Home wants to establish an innovative nutritional education workspace that will provide enjoyable, affordable classes on healthy food preparation and other approaches to good nutrition. Your contribution can help us meet this goal.
