    Community Problem Solving Project 1:

    Combating food waste & loss, ending food deserts


    During the 2018-19 school year, we held 8 Fresh Hub events and served 650 people living in food deserts. Special thanks to Second Servings and the Houston Health Department for collaborating with us!


    In 2019-20 school year, Fresh Hub continues to host monthly food distribution and invite more partners to the events.

    New GIPS topic for November Practice Problem

    Combating Food Deserts + Food Waste


    Our Community Problem solving project:

    We will provide fresh food alternatives, like vegetables and fruits, for those living in food deserts. Not only will our project provide healthy produce for the 500,000 people living in Houston food deserts, but we will also decrease the amount of food loss and waste. Farmers and grocery stores inevitably waste food when customers reject certain items based on their imperfect appearances. We will take the healthy, fresh produce that would have been thrown away and bring them to our food markets.
