Seven Generations Ahead is extremely thankful for the support of the Lumpkin Family Foundation, which allows us to expand our work and advance healthy communities throughout Illinois. SGA's Fresh From the Farm program created five successful workshops with Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center in 2014. The workshops were designed as holistic supports to the work of SBL's health educators and focused on family wellness and eating fresh, seasonal vegetables. Working with strong partners in Coles County allows us to make the issue of sustainable food relevant and compelling in a rural, corn-belt community. One nurse who attended some of our programs said, "I found all of the information useful and definitely want to share some of the recipe modification tips and suggestions to help patients and clients try to improve personal and family nutritional habits. And I have certainly enjoyed trying some of the changes and incorporating new vegetables."
