The LGE Farmstand is one facet of GrowNYC's Learn It Grow It Eat It program, which is aimed at improving the health of young people through nutrition education and improved food access in their schools and community. In addition to offering fresh produce to the community, LGE interns also perform cooking demonstrations and conduct educational activities at the Farmstand’s Nutrition Education table. Founded in 2008, the LGE Farmstand is one of the longest running Farmstands, now in its thirteenth season.

In a moment where New Yorkers have turned to parks and gardening to ease the mental and emotional strain the Covid-19 pandemic has taken on residents, when the need for education surrounding nutrition and health couldn’t be more critical, the same nonprofits that make green space and nutrition education possible are in danger of going under, while vital city agencies like the New York City Parks Department’s GreenThumb program are facing severe budget cuts.
