Blog 6: Missouri Food Pantries Help Clients Grow Their Own Food
- This articles shows how Grow Well Missouri, a food aid program, is doing their part to reduce hunger statistics by teaching low-income locals how to grow healthy food options. I chose this article because I like people who use critical thinking to approach difficult situations. This solution provides cost-effective, healthy and feasible opportunities for already-struggling individuals.
- Grow Well Missouri administered a survey to 158 food bank clients from four communities being served. They were asked various questions over feelings of control over their health, program usefulness and intention to use services. The results from the survey showed the positive impact the program has on its communities and provided enough evidence for continuous of services.
- What was the reasoning behind selecting Columbia, St. James, Mexico and Shelbina as ‘test markets’? Other than income, what demographic data were considered when distributing the survey (i.e. women, single parent families, disabilities, household size, etc.)? Where homeless considered part of the study or just low-income?
