Late spring, early summer is a pivotal time for growing produce, and thanks to the No Kid Hungry, Baton Roots will continue to grow fresh food and educate the residents of Baton Rouge on how to do it for themselves.
Food sovereignty is a major focus for the Baton Roots program, with education leading that effort. Through Baton Roots' many events and Hustle & Grow program, individuals of all ages are able to learn that fresh food can be cultivated by anyone!
No Kid Hungry looks to maximize participation in child nutrition and food insecurity programs, so partnering with Baton Roots was an easy fit. This $30,000 grant award will help contribute to supporting the farm's staff, educational classes, and over 1,000 pounds of fresh produce distributed for free to local families and residents.
THANK YOU NO KID HUNGRY!
