Easterns Automotive Supports DC Urban Greens
WUSA 9’s Reese Waters of Get Up DC became aware of an incredible DC-based nonprofit called DC Urban Greens and just had to get involved. He called his friends at Easterns Automotive Group and they were delighted and honored to sponsor this segment. Easterns donated $1,000 to DC Urban Greens to help their incredible mission.
What is DC Urban Greens?
The food that we put in our bodies is imperative to both our physical and mental health. DC Urban Greens works to provide healthy yet affordable foods to residents in Washington D.C. They are a nonprofit organization that runs farms in DC’s food desert regions. The food is grown in DC’s Ward 7 and 8 because they are the neighborhoods that need it the most. Low income areas with limited access to grocery stores provide a cheap alternative for members of the community. DC Urban Greens provides training and job opportunities for DC residents to learn and get a job farming. They are truly incredible nonprofit that is about empowering people and making the information accessible for members of the community to learn about the importance of health. Students are able to learn as well because DC Urban Greens provides field trips for students to visit the farms. Children are able to make amazing nutritional decisions when they learn about these topics early on that stick with them throughout their lives.
