At EmblemHealth, we strive to help New York neighborhoods stay healthy. Our support of GrowNYC has helped us keep our commitment to New Yorkers with our sponsorship of their school tours to greenmarkets to educate students on the importance of nutritious foods in their diet and expose them to a variety of fresh produce. Our support of their greenmarkets allows us a perfect setting to demonstrate what care feels like as we share information on how to stay healthy and live well. GrowNYC is a dedicated and professional organization that is a pleasure to work with.
Review from Guidestar
I have worked with GrowNYC for 3 years and appreciate the service they provide New Yorkers. The most visible success and the bedrock of the organization are the Greenmarkets they have organized and managed for over 40 years. Building upon the success of these markets, particularly the UNION SQUARE market, GrowNYC has developed several educational programs for the NY City public schools that introduce young children to healthy eating and nutritional information that will serve them well for life, information many are not exposed to in their homes or neighborhoods. I support their educational initiatives and look for opportunities to volunteer when possible. Their business practices are admirable and the continued creative approach to finding answers for what others describe as intractable issues is an approach that I admire and believe will help lead our City to a better future.
