Our project focuses on the lack of community in the South Philadelphia area and the high crime rates that are a result of this. We propose a monthly social event to be hosted at the parks and rec centers that are being revitalized by the state. We will start a sponsorship with Amazon who now owns Whole Foods as well as Aldi’s to promote healthy eating as well as provide food for the events.
