Many people in our community suffers from food insecurity. The Urban Farm has provided over 500 pounds of fresh fruit and vegetables for over 15,000 individuals in our community and the need is still great. The North Kansas City Urban Farm provides food for to the community that have food insecurity free of charge. The farm gives access to healthy food to the community, which improves and enriches the quality and health of the community. Sustaining the farm is crucial to sustaining our community.
Project objectives from proposal:
We would like to expand the Urban Farm from 10 beds and 10 orchard trees to 20 beds and 20 orchard trees to make a greater impact in the lives of the community with food insecurities. We will share our progress with our partners, such as Kansas City Community Gardens and others through our website and social media.
