Healthy Day Partners is an Encinitas-based nonprofit that aims to create a healthier and more just local food system by designing educational gardens, farms, and lessons that increase access to healthy food for everyone, no matter their zip code or income level. The organization advocates for full integration of nutrition and environmental education into school classrooms, gardens, and cafeterias with a goal of empowering all people to grow their own food, and/or source it as close to their plates as possible to improve personal health and the health of the planet.
You can be an important part of Healthy Day Partners’ hunger relief work by planting your garden for abundance! This month, Healthy Day is launching their Fresh Food Connect program in the communities of Encinitas and Carlsbad! Individual gardeners can sign up on the Fresh Food Connect app to donate their homegrown produce and contribute to a healthier community. Healthy Day will connect the fresh produce from your home garden directly to local food pantries to feed our neighbors facing food insecurity.
Finally, there is a way for you to donate your local garden produce to help improve local community health and strengthen the local food system – while reducing food waste! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.healthydaypartners.org to learn how you can help grow a healthier world.
