This program is a unique and innovative model that integrates social service programs and economic development by addressing root causes of poverty relating to the access to healthy and affordable food. Our social services and economic development programs are located in a poverty area of Boynton Beach, known as the Heart of Boynton. The Heart of Boynton has recently been identified as a “Food Dessert” by the United States Department of Agriculture.
