Better Basics is making a tremendous impact in the lives of students. It is incredible to observe the after-school enrichment programs and how they affect whole families, not just individual students. I have had the privilege to participate in some of the gardening programs, amazing to see the kids learn how to produce and consume their own food. This organization is one-of-a-kind.
