The Challenge

Children in Detroit Are Unable to Have Healthy Snacks After School

Students at Pershings High School do not have access to healthy snacks after school. Students often have physically strenuous physical activities after school and could use healthy snacks to work harder and better after school. In addition, the lunch options at the school are very unhealthy and according to Campbell University, "Mental and behavioral problems can be traced back to unhealthy nutrition and poor eating habits."

Our Solution

Working with Local Farms to Buy Affordable and Healthy Produce Can Supply Students with Snacks

In order to provide a large group of students with many healthy snacks, we will work with local farmers to buy fresh produce in bulk. Katherina Rosqueta, executive director of the Center for High Impact Philanthropy at the University of Pennsylvania, explains that food providers can get what they need for “pennies on the dollar.” She estimates that they pay about 10 cents a pound for food that would cost you $2 per pound retail.

Teaching mothers to raise fresh organic food in kitchen gardens helps to provide a continuous supply of nutritious food to children and mothers.
