We are extremely grateful to Deanna and David for their invaluable contribution in facilitating Hawaii Nutrition Center program's "Food to Grow" at Kekaulike Courtyards.
Their unwavering dedication, professionalism, and ability to educate our community have been truly remarkable.
Through their guidance, we have gained access to incredible resources that will allow our community to live healthily on a limited budget, all thanks to the program's website.
The experience of learning how to create sustainability and grow our own food has been transformative. We cannot express enough gratitude for the education, time, and
generosity provided by this program. We sincerely hope that every community seizes this opportunity.
We eagerly anticipate witnessing our residents' success in growing their own food and are excited to see the images that capture these achievements.
Thank you so much for everything.
I originally established contact with SNAP-Ed to ask for a list of resources to help assist me with a nutrition class I was planning on teaching. Deanna reached out to me with a whole program called Food to Grow! The resources, class, and training she offered me was way more than I could have ever asked for. Food to Grow is such an amazing program for the community to get involved in growing their own fruits and vegetables. What a sense of accomplishment being able to grow your own food! The residents and employees at our shelter loved having the opportunity to green their thumbs. I 100% recommend this program!
We loved the education on healthy foods, habits and plants that were shared to the community and families.
Keep doing what you folks are doing because it's so impactful!
The children had an opportunity to learn to grow their own beans. Thank you Food To Grow program and Deanna for this wonderful program!
Thanks so much for letting us participate in this program, it has been a real success!
I was also a part of the (group) who didn't know about using EBT. I appreciate the education.
The tenants were thrilled with this project and it was very easy to work with Deanna! She was well organized.
I like how the project was broken down so it was easy to explain to the kids.
Deanna was so enthusiastic, it was a pleasure working with her. Tenants were a little shy at first but once they were encouraged, they were able to participate. Wonderful project for the Seniors!
I absolutely loved the Food to Grow project and appreciate our partnership so much. Thank you for making the process so easy and smooth.
The project was well prepared. Activity was thorough.
It's a great project! It gives the recipient the responsibility to take care of something that he/she will enjoy eating later on.
Children enjoyed the hands on experience!
This project has opened many doors of interest and possibilities for the students. They enjoyed the simplicity in task which therefore caused them to engage throughout the project. Students looked forward to the follow up activities, with frequent questions like "why can't we plant the seeds today?" or "when are we going to plant the seeds again?" which was asked daily for a week straight! On the end of coordinating, planning was very thorough yet extremely flexible. The students school life has been adjusted completely, and being able to work with Deanna to better suit their new way of schooling was a pleasure. This project was definitely a delight to have, and I look forward to introducing this to the rest of our programs/sites. MAHALO!
