Brightside Let's Grow

Using the Let's Grow blueprint as a guide, the Louisville mayor's office engages volunteers to improve access to healthy foods in low-income neighborhoods where grocery stores and fresh produce markets are scarce. ​By establishing fruit and vegetable gardens in partnership with local community-based organizations and volunteers, Mayor Fischer is able to address health challenges related to hunger, food insecurity, and poor nutrition, which are often found in communities with little access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Through an associated awareness campaign, the city has promoted opportunities for residents to get free, fresh produce and monthly cooking classes, which keep them engaged and allow them to develop new skills.
