Farm to Families – Fresh Food Access in North Philly
The work of St. Christopher’s Foundation for Children comes in many forms. We partner with some of the best organizations providing innovative and successful children’s health interventions. We bring the community together, providing a platform for people to create well-rounded and responsive strategies to children’s critical health issues. And we create and manage our own programs, including the Community Oral Health Initiatives (COHI), the Scald Prevention “Save Our Skin” program (SOS), and Farm to Families – a fresh food access program that works with FreshRx to give families the tools to connect diet and nutrition with better health outcomes for children in North Philadelphia. Our strategies are diverse, but they work together to help us reach our ultimate goal: improved health and wellness, and a lifetime of success for children in need.
