Day 46: Growing together.
Community run food systems make our city healthy and connected. Today, we're inviting your family to think about how food fuels you. Watch this video about Growing Power, a Chicago based organization dedicated to creating healthy food systems and equipping the next generation of urban farmers.
We can all work together to make healthy food more accessible, affordable and local. Many of Chicago's neighborhoods are food deserts, lacking access to fresh healthy food. Community organizations help to fill the gap in accessibility, raise awareness for food justice, and create neighborhood connections to food systems.
