Everyone needs healthy food!
… but a lack of money, transport, or hope can create barriers to getting it. Approximately 1,300 families in Tompkins County face chronic poverty from low wages, distant housing, or poor transport. Add to that a fractured food system and these families are not getting basic healthy food. The cycle deepens when the food they do get can cause obesity, diabetes and other relentless challenges.
Greenstar Community Projects is leading 4 initiatives that aim to positively impact the food system in Tompkins County and to help ameliorate poverty in our community.
