Health in the Hood farms reconnect us to our food sources and empower us to grow our own food.

Urban Farming

We think unused space should be used to grow food. It’s that simple. 

Our community gardens transform vacant land in underserved neighborhoods into vibrant urban farms, providing fresh produce to the local community.

Wellness Programming


The gardens not only provide fresh produce, but they are also our living classrooms. Our healthy living workshops are high energy, interactive nutrition and fitness programs centered around growing our own food. Our wellness workshops include nutrition games, healthy eating competitions, cooking demonstrations, reading ingredient labels, food journaling, exercise obstacles courses, yoga, aerobics classes, and more!

Food Distribution 

Our Drive-Thru Food Distribution program is bridging the gap in local food systems by distributing free, fresh fruits and vegetables in food desert neighborhoods. What started as an urgent need during the pandemic has blossomed into a weekly, stable resource for our communities. Soon, in our upcoming Mobile Pantry, kids and families will be able to choose their favorite fruits and vegetables in an inclusive and exciting environment.
