The Sustainable Hunger Initiative
Nutrition Education is critical in preventing poor nutrition: a commonality within food-desert areas and a major factor of various health disparities.
Through the Greenville Community Garden, Fitness and Nutrition Program, and active education outreach, we have and continue to help deconstruct the socioeconomic, geographic, and financial barriers between low-income families and healthy-food access.
Over 17,500 youth have engaged in innovative nutrition-education programs and experiential learning, as well as impactful fitness education. Our efforts help produce healthier, better-informed communities and influence positive, lasting changes in dietary behaviors and attitudes.
In order to increase awareness and galvanize change against injustices, the Sustainable Hunger Initiative recognizes the value of youth-involvement and community-partnerships.
Through this strong emphasis, the Sustainable Hunger Initiative has helped produce healthier, better-informed communities, advance sustainable solutions, and inspire countless individuals to take action against not only hunger but other relevant issues facing communities and the environment.
As we expand our impact through broader involvement and 20 partnerships, our Garden serves as a replicable model to follow in its use of sustainable farming methods and far-reaching impact.
To tackle hunger, poverty, and poor-nutrition, we provide access to healthy, nutritious foods and promote an accessible Community Garden.
With countless low-income families impeded from healthy-food access, the Sustainable Hunger Initiative has provided 30,000+ pounds of healthy, diverse food-supplies to community-groups serving 400+ families residing in food-deserts.
Through its sustainable agricultural methods and far-reaching impact, the Greenville Community Garden has directly inspired...
