Shared goal(s): Continue or Leverage existing partnerships to meet youth needs, Directly check on the well-being of youth and families
Fresh For All began pre-COVID and worked with students to spread their knowledge into the community as they help hand out the free produce to people who live in the community. During COVID, Philabundance quickly worked to make sure students and community members still had access to healthy and fresh produce. Students and families can come to the school site and collect a box with fresh fruits and vegetables.
