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. We teach children how to grow, harvest and prepare their own food, even in sub-zero conditions. We have been successful in growing food in schools and communities in Upstate New York throughout the winter. As we teach children how to grow food on their own and how to collect and filter water, we also inculcate in them an appreciation for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and a deep respect for 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 and we are now expanding our projects to India.
Quench & Nourish is honored to have been funded by notable organizations such as the Whole Kids Foundation, Welch Allyn Foundation, Lowe's, Argo Turbo, the Cayuga County Health Department, the Marcellus First Presbyterian Church and other generous community members who have made our local projects possible.
