The Neighborhood Hub has staff versed in creating a healthy, safe home. We educate community members about some of the potential hazards found in the home and how to reduce those hazards. We also teach people how to create non-toxic cleaning products at a fraction of the cost of traditional, store-bought solutions. We further do ongoing education about how community members can cook their favorite foods in a healthier, more economical way so that they may enjoy eating, while living longer lives.
The Hub has a garden onsite where we grow fresh produce without chemicals. The garden is available to neighborhood residents to participate in planting, tending and harvesting healthy food for their consumption.
Children ages 0-18 are invited to participate in our lunch program which we do in partnership with the Minneapolis Public Schools during the summer months. Our trained staff serves lunch to the children while the Hub supplements the program with sandwich/salad bars for parents who are accompanying their young ones to the program.
The Hub works with neighborhood youth to provide paid and unpaid internships to young people who are looking to learn office skills. In addition, we provide a safe, culturally competent location for young people to volunteer when they are performing court-ordered community service.
