"Our religion teaches us that compassion for the poor and hungry is not enough. A fundamental Jewish principle is that those who have much should share with others less fortunate. I want to help not only my Jewish community, but all families struggling with hunger in the region."
Go Healthy St. Louis engages a network of 750 volunteers to build and maintain gardens for organizations supporting low-income communities. Gardens not only generate fresh produce for local food banks but also serve as hands-on places of discovery, where low-income preschoolers learn about gardening and healthy eating during regular workshops. Go Healthy St. Louis has donated more than 5,000 lbs of produce to St. Louis families, and its workshops have reached over 1,200 youth.
