What we aim to solve

​Our community-based hunger relief program, ​Combat H.U.N.G.E.R.(Helping Under-served Neighborhoods to Grow & Eat Regularly), focuses on the low-income & impoverished population of under-served areas within Nassau County.Our program encourages critical thinking and to cultivate a cohesive identity in order to lay a foundation for future explorative and a programmatic work to eliminate food. Food insecurity doesn't mean abject hunger, but it does mean that people will make trade-offs about whether to skip a meal.
