ORGANIZATION: Seeds in the Middle

  • 1 person is interested

Tastes of Brooklyn supports our charity, Seeds in the Middle, which seeks to erase food deserts by empowering local people to run their own farm stands, edible gardens and Hip2B Healthy Cafes plus soccer and community fun for kids.

We need an app person to design us a less clunkier way to process tickets for restaurants, bars, and food establishments who generously take part in Tastes of Brooklyn events.

If this intrigues you, please email us at tastesofbk@seedsinthemiddle.org

See tastesofbrooklyn.com to see events.

Seeds in the Middle addresses the vast health disparities spotlighted by Covid-19. Everyone needs affordable, nearby access to fresh fruits and vegetables to lead a healthy life.

About Seeds in the Middle

Location:

153 Warren Street, BROOKLYN, NY 11201, US

Mission Statement

Seeds in the Middle partners with students, educators, parents & their communities to access all opportunities, beginning with improving health, enhancing arts education and greening their environment. We empower and educate all to get healthy and scale educational and social disparities. Our pilot schools are in central Brooklyn, a neighborhood with among the city’s highest obesity, diabetes, and heart disease rates. We teach how to grow, market, cook, access and prepare fresh food, how to exercise & engage in the arts, all the elements needed to promote life-changing lifelong health. Our volunteers come from all walks of life. We cross cultures. We transform gray into green, destitution into inspiration.

Description

Seeds in the Middle offers joyful, healthy interventions that nurture the whole child and address the multiple obstacles blocking low-income children and families from getting healthy. We teach how to grow edible gardens, run a student-led Hip2B Healthy Market, bring chefs into schools, started soccer, running and fitness programs at school and in the community and music and arts in the schools. We integrate professional development for teachers so that a healthy lifestyle and environmental stewardship becomes organic and sustainable in the school community. To build community, we created Soccer for Harmony tournaments and the Crown Heights Farmers Market. In two years, we have engaged more than 1,000 families, and students and teachers report changing their habits to include more fruits and vegetables, and fitness. This is a pilot for any school and Seeds in the Middle plans to replicate.
