The Garfield Park Community Council (GPCC) is a community-building organization made up of dedicated residents and allies working together to develop leaders and create opportunities and programs that build a vital Garfield park community. Garfield Park residents struggle with access to healthy foods and fresh produce and the health impacts of those struggles. This grant, a renewal of support which began last year, enables the GPCC to facilitate programs that promote health and wellness on Chicago’s West Side, providing nutritional education and healthy foods to children and families who attend public events
