Aetna Foundation GoLocal: Cultivating Healthy Communities Grants Program|
In recent years, the Aetna Foundation has placed increased emphasis on supporting local programs that improve access to locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables in underserved communities. Beyond bringing a richer array of nutritious foods to people, these programs by nature bring communities closer together — people of all ages come together to plan and nurture gardens, take part in farming activities and visit markets where a full array of fruits and vegetables is available. Local Roots: Supporting Community Gardens, Urban Farms and Farmers Markets will fund the creation and expansion of community gardens, urban farms and farmers markets in underserved neighborhoods so that fresh fruits and vegetables are locally available, accessible and affordable.
