2017 Grantee: Kingsborough Community College Urban Farm -- Bring it Home

Kingsborough Community College Urban Farm

Also, we are particularly pleased with the outcomes of the Kingsborough Community College Urban Farm Bring it Home Program, which is working to close the gap between access to healthy fresh produce and healthy eating. Research shows that access alone does not mitigate food insecurity—eaters need skills, knowledge and comfort around fresh fruits and vegetables as well. Bring it Home at Kingsborough engages community college students through cooking interventions with the intention of continuing healthy eating practices even after they leave the college.
