Food deserts can be hazardous to your health. Food deserts impact affluent, middle, and low-income communities across the country. Family Tree Market will build healthier communities by providing affordable, high quality food, education, and services to underserved populations.
Food advocacy for underserved areas in particular is an uphill battle that requires all hands on deck. We need your help in this fight. 86% of all health care spending is the result of chronic diseases and those costs are rising. Our nation spends more on health care than any other country in the world. Underserved areas like Montbello get hit the hardest with unhealthy food options that feed a health infrastructure that does not work for everyone. We can change this in simple ways. Partner with us to help make a difference at the ground level.
We believe in community engagement and value small donation as an approve of the overall effort and mission. A gift of $25.00, $50.00 or $100.00 goes a long way towards making sure that Montbello and communities like Montbello become healthy communities.
If you are passionate about the Montbello community then we encourage you to get in the arena. Montbello and communities like Montbello require residents to demand for equity. If you do not, no one else will. There are several ways to get involve, start with MOC.
Our mission is to improve the way the food industry responds to meeting the needs of our communities. This includes programmatic efforts with the community to improve the overall health of the community and measuring the effect of those efforts to ensure that we are having a sustainable impact over time. If you are passionate about this issue, we would love to work with you.
