After four years of telling the real stories of our food community, my husband and I are excited to introduce our new nonprofit organization: the Edible Indy Foundation. This foundation is our continued commitment to connect Indiana youth with real food.

Edible Indy Foundation Manifesto
We believe all children are entitled to sustainable and nourishing food. Yet one in five Indiana youths go hungry on a regular basis and 432,000 rely on a free or reduced-price lunch program—in the Indianapolis Public Schools, 77 percent of students fall into this category.
We believe all youths should have empowering opportunities that include education on growing, producing and developing foods that can nourish the whole self. We will help Indiana’s youth learn where real food comes from and the impact it has on their daily life.
We believe food is medicine and poor nutrition impacts childhood behavior, development and growth. Feeding Indiana’s future generations with knowledge will grow the minds, bodies and communities of the future.

We will work directly with individuals, communities and organizations statewide to access available opportunities that reach the minds of Indiana’s youth. The core strategy of our foundation is to provide micro-grants and resources to further these goals.
In early 2018, the foundation will launch our grant application program via our Edible Indy website. To learn more about our foundation you can find us on Facebook and Instagram @edibleindyfoundation or feel free to reach out via email to jennifer@edibleindy.com.

We welcome you to participate in our 2017 Golf Outing hosted by Liberty Mutual Insurance. Find out more informatoin on this fun and worthy cause here.
