Urban Seeds continues to create equitable food access in our community and we invite you to support us in our achievements. With the rising prices of household necessities, there will be even more of a need to provide nourishing foods to families who will not have access otherwise. We believe that it is imperative to remedy these concerns not only during times of high need, but year-round. It is our mission that all people have sustainable access to nourishing food and we are working tirelessly to achieve that. We are expanding our reach in our community but cannot do so without your financial help. Our winter endeavor is to Fill Their Plate and we invite you to support us in this effort.
Our signature program Nourish, has been instrumental in bridging the gap to accessing healthy foods with continued growth in participation. Urban Seeds as the lead organization, along with several community partners, has organized this Community Food Buying Club to provide nutritious food to families at a significant cost savings. This program seeks to not just feed people but to feed them delicious, nutrient-dense food that is easily accessible. Nourish also provides an education component for its members, teaching basic cooking skills and nutrition, to ensure the program creates an environment that fosters success and resilience for the members.
Another of our fantastic programs is Book n’ Cook. In cooperation with our community partners, this program works to foster skills in cooking with a focus on seasonal, locally grown foods, while promoting children’s literacy and family reading. Participants receive all the cooking tools and ingredients necessary to create a recipe that is paired with an engaging story book. By providing all the items needed to prepare the
meal or side dish of that class, this program is perfect for any child, and has received fantastic feedback by all participants.
Lastly, we are kicking off our community educational programming entitled Food for Thought in the coming year. This programming seeks to provide educational opportunities for all ages in our community. From young children to the heads of families, Urban Seeds seeks to teach the necessary skills to create delicious, nutritious dishes. We ask that you donate to Urban Seeds to allow us to achieve our goal to Fill Their Plate for all of the families in our community. Your donation of any amount goes directly to Urban Seeds and allows us to have a lasting impact on access to nourishing food.
Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
