LAS VEGAS – Southern Nevada’s only food bank, Three Square is teaming with up with another local charity Create A Change Now to bring fresh produce to children in the community who struggle obtaining nutritional options.
Since joining forces last August, the pair has provided more than 1,000 students a five-pound bag of assorted fresh produce to take home to their families. Create A Change Now and Three Square continue to expand the positive collaboration by adding a one school each month throughout the school year, increasing the number of children and families benefitting from fresh fruits and vegetables they might not have access too otherwise.
More than 126,000 children in Southern Nevada live in ‘food deserts’ and struggle with hunger. This partnership allows both organizations to fulfill their mission of education, making healthy choices and simply feeding each child with wholesome foods that will help them develop and thrive.
Create A Change Now is a nonprofit organization that is committed to educating and empowering children and their families by providing the resources needed to tackle childhood obesity and related diseases.
