As urban farmers and educators who are connected to food from seed to plate, we believe that fresh food has the power to strengthen communities and create a culture of health.
Healthy food should be a fundamental right, not a privilege, so our goal is to make healthy eating easier and more accessible.
Due to COVID-19, there has been a surge in people facing food insecurity. Greener Partners’ free urban gardening programs and produce distributions are urgently needed during this crisis – and beyond – to help build lasting fresh food resources. We have mobilized to fill the critical need for fresh produce in the emergency food system. Since March 16th, we have distributed over 50,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to more than 9,000 people in West Philadelphia, Norristown, and Chester.
