Inspiring a Healthy Future
Leveraging the Flex Farm within Healthcare
Community health goes far beyond what occurs within the walls of a hospital or clinic. It focuses on the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle to support the community as a whole. Access to a reliable, local source of healthy food is a key component to community initiatives as health starts with the foods that we consume.
The Flex Farm program works to educate and inspire children and adults to make healthy food choices. It supports healthy food environments where children learn and where people work and live in their communities by ensuring healthy foods such as fresh leafy greens and vegetables are abundantly accessible.
Furthermore, it provides a physical engagement point where data can be collected and utilized for health determination studies providing evidence to support your community-based initiatives.
Having a Flex Farm program at the community level inspires healthy living, helps prevent chronic diseases and brings the greatest health benefits to the greatest number of people in need through access to fresh healthy foods.
