Washington, D.C. has 82 school gardens and 30 farmers’ markets.
Yet childhood obesity rates are well above the national average; and
1 in 8 District residents struggle to afford fresh fruit or vegetables.
The infrastructure is in place, now it’s time for some solutions.
Through education and access, DC Greens is working to bridge the gaps in our
local food system to ensure that all residents of the District have a deeper connection
to the sources of their food and can afford fresh, local fruit and vegetables.
