My project empowers small holder farmers, particularly vulnerable poor women and unemployed youth in rural communities, through capacity building and startup support in sustainable organic farming and agro forestry technologies to boost soil fertility, improve household nutrition, and increase family income levels.
SÜPRMARKT makes it easy and affordable for people to eat well no matter where they live. SÜPRMARKT provides consistent access to affordable organics in weekly at cost grocery pop-ups which accept EBT. Our non-profit foundation SÜPRSEED creates engaging and culturally relevant experiences which encourage sustainable vegan living.
We provide accessible gardening space, free organic community produce, and education opportunities. In 2019, we will engage more than 1000 people in 224 community work days, and over 100 hours of diverse educational programs.
Everyone at Impact Harvest is passionate about ending hunger in our community. We believe that every human being should have access to fresh fruits and vegetables, regardless of their financial situation. We live and serve in 2 of the poorest counties in the state of NJ, where 1 out of 6 children go hungry each day.
We aim to generate an active environmental awareness with different activities how the urban community garden where we promote the planting of some organic vegetables for self-consumption where we address the issue of food sovereignty and we also promote that people take responsibility for their waste so we currently want to work on an organic waste management plan to produce our own compost.
We transform wasteful lawns into sustainable farm plots with produce sold to local vendors within a 5-mile radius. Our programs and events provide important educational tools imperative for social change and national food security. Together, we can preserve the knowledge of how to feed oneself while providing healthy produce to local communities.
