Gabriel’s Place is an Avondale community based non-profit aimed to educate on the importance and "know how" to grow food, cook food and eat in a healthy accessible way. Gabriel’s Place is for community members who would like a more rewarding and healthier life. Our products and services provide accessibility and education with a holistic approach to health, with emphasis on being a local food resource that empowers families towards self-determination for the benefit of a sustainable community. We are unlike other organizations because we offer growing, cooking and eating opportunities that demonstrate the food cycle from garden to table. We are located one mile from campus and would welcome any individual or groups to come alongside these events--faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends are all welcome!
We are springing into action around here, and invite you and/or your organization to join with us. To begin, we are creating healthy snack bags for two events in the city--community engagement, nutrition education and fun all in one! Please read on for ways you can be involved. You can work with a team of volunteers to create healthy snack bags for children learning about ways to eat healthy. Pre-cut fruits and vegetables need to be placed in separate bags; safe food handling will be presented at the beginning of your shift. On each day, we need to create 1,000 bags which will be delivered into the community the next morning. So come for an hour, or the whole time; come alone, or with a friend. We look forward to your support to spread the news about good food.
