Introducing the GROW Nutrition Program
how $100 will help a student grow
Consider sponsoring a student in our pilot nutrition program!
To GROW the impact of our existing neighborhood garden, ELI is partnering with Samford University, the Community Food Bank, Urban Ministry, and REV Birmingham to show students easy ways to incorporate fresh vegetables and fruits into their diets and providing free produce to encourage this change.
$100 WILL PROVIDE ONE STUDENT:
An 8 week class promoting fresh, healthy eating and cooking
A 10 pound bag of garden fresh & local produce per week throughout the 8 week program
A healthy cooking starter kit (cutting board, measuring cups, etc)
The opportunity to make a lasting lifestyle change through healthier eating choices
The program begins in April 2018 and we are seeking sponsors for 35 students to participate. Please consider how you might be able to help a student with a positive life change through your sponsorship!
