Service Details

Service Description

A Youth Council made up of leaders from Boys and Girls Clubs countywide has created a youth-based, youth-initiated project to make it easier to eat healthy and create healthier eating habits starting at local clubs. Clubs are doing innovative partnerships with local communities. With "Up Gardens" in Sultan, Snohomish, and other locales, Clubs create gardens, and volunteers in many teach how to plant, grow, harvest and prepare local foods. With Power of Produce programs, in Monroe and Snohomish, local clubs connect with local farmers markets and create healthy/creative activities at farmers markets, earning tokens to buy fresh
