the project

The Healthy Community Impact project goal is to reduce chronic disease, through access to healthy foods & outreach in the Cleveland Ward 1 & 6 areas. This funding will allow community members to work collectively to create 10 Community Outreach events, 10 Workshops, 15 Gardens and 5 clean up projects to increase healthy access to nutritious foods while creating a sustainable environment for over 2,000 residents in the Cleveland Ward 1 & 6. 

Together we can make a difference and limit the impacts of chronic disease such as, heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity and arthritis in the Cleveland Ward 1 and 6 areas.  If you act before January 1, 2018 you will receive a tax deductible write off while making difference.

why we're doing it

As a resident and liaison serving on the Cleveland High Tunnel Project along with the USDA in 2015-2016, many of the Urban Farmers stated some of the biggest challenges in the efforts to create healthy access to nutritious foods included garden maintenance and resources. In fact, according to an article from the Center of Disease Control and Prevention, “chronic disease is the leading cause of disabilities in the United States." In fact, it states that "Chronic diseases and conditions such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity and arthritis are among the most common, costly and preventable of all health problems." Our goal in addressing these chronic diseases is to increase healthy access to nutritious foods and create a sustainable community environment through the Healthy Community Impact project. This funding will allow the Urban Farmers and community members in Ward 1 and 6, through our Healthy Community impact project, the ability to work collectively to increase healthy access to nutritious foods while providing the tools and resources necessary to create a sustainable environment.
