Here's how your gift helps:

$20 could help a lower-income family bring home three pounds of apples, five bunches of collard greens and five pounds of sweet potatoes from their local farmers' market, through our Philly Food Bucks program.

$500 could help middle-school youth add raised beds and potted fruit trees to their school garden -- and teach them the business skills to sell the healthy food they've grown to their friends and neighbors at a nearby corner store.

$2,000 could help hundreds of urban kindergarten students connect them to where nutritious food comes from through field trips to local farms that will help them form lifelong healthy eating habits.
