Changemaker Profile: Teens Grow Greens

Check out the work being done by these inspiring teens in Milwaukee who are tackling #foodinsecurity in their community.

#foodapartheid is a bad enough problem under normal circumstances. The Covid-19 pandemic has made the challenges of providing access to healthy foods a major community challenge.


“It’s tough to know how the COVID-19 pandemic will affect food insecurity in the months and years to come, but a Feeding America report projects that affected communities will continue to struggle as food insecure populations continue to rise. States at the highest risk of seeing food insecurity increase include North Dakota, Minnesota, Nevada, Wisconsin and Hawaii.

To truly increase food accessibility, it starts from the ground up for self-sufficient neighborhoods. Teens Grow Greens is one organization in Milwaukee, WI that is helping to close the healthy food and unemployment gaps through agricultural education for young teens.”
