Surabhi Mahajan—Marion Polk Food Share

Share

As a VISTA member at the Marion-Polk Food Share, Surabhi’s program focus is around providing subsidized Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) from the Youth Farm to low-income individuals managing chronic, diet-related illnesses.  She has been partnering with area Title I schools to bring local fifth graders to the farm for gardening and nutrition education. Some ways that she has been building the capacity of this important program with MPFS is that she has developed educational materials, trained volunteers, and further established local partnerships with schools and care providers.
