Fresh I Recap: How local food is improving health outcomes in Metro Atlanta (VIDEO)


Collaboration is essential to our work at Food Well Alliance because stronger partnerships magnify our impact. Thanks to you, we were able to highlight what is happening on Atlanta’s Westside and in Metro Atlanta on August 23.

Our ability to strengthen Metro Atlanta’s local food system is accelerated and expanded by our community partners, which include our partners for Fresh 1: Wholesome Wave Georgia, Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University School of Medicine’s Urban Health Initiative, Georgia Food Oasis and Good Samaritan Health Center.

From forging new partnerships to learning about the work being done at the Good Samaritan Health Center, Fresh I was an opportunity to learn more about how health and local food work together to improve the health of our city and communities.

Urban growers and innovative healthcare organizations understand that local food is a tool to address diet-related diseases.

At Food Well Alliance, local food is at the center of what we do, and we believe local food is key to building a livable, resilient Metro Atlanta that grows, shares and enjoys fresh, locally-grown food.

We hope you will join us for Fresh II on Wednesday, September 13th at the Good Samaritan Health Center from 12:30pm-2:30pm. Reserve your place now!

Also, attached you can find the case study on the Good Samaritan Health Center. Check it out, read it and learn more about the work they are doing with their local food prescription program and urban farm.

We thank you for your work and interest in health and local food, and we look forward to seeing you at Fresh II. To stay up to date with Food Well Alliance's work, you can join as a member here.
