Currently my programs are in areas that students are under served and in need of proper guidance to enable them to make proper choices with themselves as well as direct them to a solid career foundation.
We have been working with 1:1Foods where we donate food to families in need. Our food relief program consists of delivering to areas that have been impacted by COVID-19 . You can go on our IG page at 1:1 Foods and see how we deliver to those in need. Our foods are are all from local farms and organically grown.
We engage volunteers to deliver services to the underserved communities. Our volunteers are here to improve these communities to have access to a healthy and culturally appropriate lifestyle.
It is our motto: "Feed The Mind & The Body Will Follow"
