According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 17 percent of children and adolescents ages 219 in the United States are affected by obesityalmost triple the amount affected in 1980. One significant dietary risk behavior linked to the development of obesity is an inadequate consumption of fruits and vegetables. Sustainable Food Center (SFC) strives to develop a healthy community in which all children and adults can access and prepare healthy, affordable, local food.
Through its Sprouting Healthy Kids project, SFC combats childhood obesity and diet-related diseases in low-income communities. Sprouting Healthy Kids partners with schools in areas with high levels of obesity, higher prices for limited produce, and inadequate food stores. Through in-class food lessons, an after-school gardening program, field trips to local farms, and taste tests, the campaign aims to empower kids to make healthy nutrition decisions as well as foster a preference for fresh produce instead of unhealthy foods.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help SFC's Sprouting Healthy Kids project provide middle-school children with healthy after-school snacks. If G-Team members raise $380, SFC can give 15 students a child-safe knife (a $7 value), child-size cutting board (an $8 value), and a month's worth of local produce, including celery, carrots, dressing, pecan butter, hummus, apples, and whole-wheat pita bread (a $10 value) so the student can prepare healthy after-school snacks for one month. Every additional $25 raised will provide an additional student with supplies and produce.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" bewarewhen you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
