Project EATS, an L+M grantee, stayed connected to their community when farm visits were restricted by producing a weekly newsletter throughout the height of the pandemic. The weekly newsletter, which is ongoing and available in print and online, recently published its 31st edition. It includes updates about what produce is available from the farm, recipe ideas, and healthy living tips. Each weekly food box includes a copy of the newsletter, along with fresh produce from the Project EATS farm and other supplemental food.
More recently, the Project EATS in Brownsville resumed their free weekly breakfasts. Residents can pick up a locally grown, healthy plant-based meal, such as a delicious vegetarian “carrot dog,” and participate in socially distanced tours of the farm in small groups.
L+M is proud to continue to support Project EATS in their mission to create equitable access to fresh food and vegetables, as well as create neighborhoods where health and well-being thrive.
