Recipient: Tonya Rooks
Our first grant was to Tonya Rooks with the College Hill Courts Residency Council, headed by Tonya Rooks. The UNfoundation granted towards the implementation of a community garden that now belongs to the West Side residents. The graden was created to meet the need created by the ever increasing ‘food desert’ scenario in the Westside. Raised beds were built to grow fresh produce to be consumed by the residents of the neighborhood. As a first project, we were really thrilled, and this quality set the tone for what was to come from The UnFoundation.
