Help us plant the seeds of health that keep on giving.
Our community in Northwest Arkansas faces both hunger and obesity. Children in food insecure families are especially vulnerable to obesity due to the additional risk factors associated with poverty. In fact, Arkansas ranks 1st in the nation for obesity with 20% of kids aged 10-17 obese in the state. It’s difficult to believe that 49% of Arkansas adolescents report consuming fruits & vegetables less than one time a day.
Giving to Apple Seeds is an investment in our community's future. We know our programs make a difference. They increase students’ consumption of fruits and vegetables, improve attitudes towards healthy food, and heighten their knowledge of nutrition.
Your support will:
•Support our expansion of the Apple Seeds Teaching Farm at Gulley Park
•Help us plant more plants at the Apple Seeds Teaching Farm
•Help us reach thousands of students and their families through our partnerships with local school districts.
•Help us fund school gardens where elementary students are learning to grow their own food.
•Help us fund school garden markets where students promote and distribute vegetables to their peers and community.
•Send students to Farm Lab
, a curriculum-rich field trip to the Apple Seeds Teaching Farm.
•Give students hands-on experience that teaches them where good food comes from and how to make nutritious food choices.
