Through education and access, DC Greens work 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. We connect communities - not only to healthy food, but also to each other - so that we can work collectively towards a more just food system and a healthier relationship to our food.
-We build strong school garden programs by providing professional development for teachers in every Ward of the city;
- We manage a farmers' market incentive program at four D.C. farmers' markets, enabling low-income residents to purchase healthy, local foods by offering "bonus bucks" to food stamp and WIC recipients.
- We launched a Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program in D.C., together with Upper Cardozo Unity Clinic, Columbia Heights Community Marketplace, and Wholesome Wave.
- We strengthen the local farm economy, and work to improve both individual and community health by bringing healthy foods to urban populations.
