WHAT WE DO
Our goal is to effectively address hunger and lack of access to clean water through the use of innovative techniques under various climate conditions, by educating young students and community members to be self-sufficient, and by partnering with other educators, scientists and inventors to create sustainable systems of food and water production. We help communities learn how to grow food on their own, how to appreciate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), and how to respect the environment that so generously provides for them.
OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
We have been working with refugee populations, farmers, migrant workers, churches, educators, primary, secondary and college students to promote agricultural, nutrition and STEM education programs in various communities in New York State.
Quench & Nourish is honored to have been funded by notable organizations such as the Whole Kids Foundation, Welch Allyn Foundation, Lowe's, the Cayuga County Health Department, the Marcellus First Presbyterian Church and other generous community members who have made our local projects possible.
