Starting in April 2007 with a two-year grant provided by the Missouri Foundation for Health, the WELL Program began. Encouraging our clients to have healthy and active lifestyles, we perform cooking classes, taste tests and education on proper nutrition and physical activity being the basic of this program. WELL stands for WALK - EAT - LEARN - LIVE your way to a healthier you!
SPRING SEEDS PROGRAM
We distribute donated seeds to clients to encourage them to grow their own flower and vegetable gardens, potentially lowering their food costs. The Lemay location is proud of the Community Garden adjacent to the office and tenderly nourished and cultivated by client volunteers.
COMMUNITY GARDEN - SOUTH COUNTY
The Community Garden at Feed My People - South County is a collaborative project with St. Luke's Methodist Church to garden the open space just south of our building. Clients are assigned lots and share in the maintenance of the 10 garden plots and grow healthy vegetables of their choice.
