The USDA defines food insecurity as the lack of consistent access to adequate food resulting from the lack of money and other resources during the year. In Georgia, 1 in 4 children live in food insecure households.
In support of the National Urban League’s effort to address health disparities within our communities, ULGA-YP is partnering with the Atlanta Community Food Bank and Food Well Alliance to grow fresh healthy food to nourish communities in the greater Atlanta area. The benefits of community gardening are boundless. It stimulates social interaction, beautifies neighborhoods and produces nutritious foods while reducing food budgets.
Volunteer work will range from clearing land, removing invasive species, prepping soil, weeding, planting, harvesting and more. Space is limited so if you are interested in volunteering in a community garden please register Here.
