A crash course in changing the world.
In Rochester, New York many people have low-incomes. Because of this, they cannot support themselves or their families with food. Three low-income schools also have to deal with this problem. A project called Rochester Roots was granted $270,000 by the Community Fund Project. With this money, Rochester Roots aim to establish community gardens at those schools. By providing them gardens, the three schools wouldn't have to deal with food supply issues. Other than planting fruits and vegetables, Rochester Roots is also making a difference in their community by teaching the students and their parents why growing food and nuitrition is important. Thanks to Rochester Roots, they increased the food security of those three schools..
