Our team will then conduct a walkthrough on October 27 to ensure all setups align with our vision, ensuring a seamless experience for our community on the event days.

why we're doing it

Furthermore, the POP Kids Club serves a dual purpose: fostering an appreciation for farm food and local produce among the younger generation and providing engaging, educational activities that strengthen community bonds. Our programming uplifts our neighbors, ensures a sustainable local economy, and creates an environment where businesses and families thrive together.

POP Kids Club

I'm overjoyed to share the fantastic opportunity to bring Uptown & Boogie Healthy Project POP Kids Club activities to Uptown Good Food Farmers Market in Harlem on October 28 and BxPE Market in The Bronx on November 5. At both farmers markets, we provided fantastic face and body paintings by Kisha's Art, and, in addition, we offered kids $2 to access fresh food from local farmers.

We are just $1205 from reaching our fundraising goal. 🥳 Your support can allow us to achieve this milestone!
