Addressing Food Deserts

In urban areas like Atlanta, “food deserts” limit access to fresh and nutritious food, often due to a lack of grocery stores offering quality produce. Local Green Atlanta is on a mission to bridge this gap, recognizing the profound impact that access
to healthy food can have on individuals and communities.

Community Empowerment

Local Green Atlanta believes in empowering communities as the catalyst for sustainable change. Through collaboration with residents, businesses, and farmers, the organization fosters self-sufficiency. Community gardens and farmers’ markets are at the core of their efforts, providing nourishment and opportunities for education and skill development.

Educational Outreach

Investing in knowledge as a tool for empowerment, Local Green Atlanta conducts workshops on sustainable farming, nutrition, and cooking classes. These initiatives empower community members to make informed choices about their health, breaking the cycle of unhealthy eating habits and promoting overall well-being.

Supporting Local Farmers

Recognizing the vital role of local farmers, Local Green Atlanta establishes partnerships with regional growers to ensure a steady supply of fresh, seasonal produce for the community. This not only benefits local farmers but also reduces the carbon footprint associated with long-distance food transportation, contributing to a more sustainable food system.
