Too many children and families living in at-risk communities don’t have access to enough fresh, healthy food. And far too many of them have never had the opportunity to see, taste or eat some of the garden’s best-tasting, good-for-you produce.

Studies show that many children from at-risk backgrounds don’t have access to fresh produce on a daily basis. However, research also shows that children who grow fresh food eat more fresh food and are healthier as a result.
