SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Prevo Health Solutions, a major stakeholder in Global Growables, Inc., has partnered with Fit2beKids to deliver a sustainable and scalable solution to childhood obesity. The solution includes; classroom and after-school curriculum from Fit2beKids and a Mobile Growable™ Unit (hydroponic indoor container garden) placed on location at schools, hospitals and in neighborhood parks.
The Mobile Growable Unit (MGU) grows as much as an acre of land, uses 10% of the water and produces up to 15,000 pounds of fresh, pesticide free and nutrient dense food per year at significantly lower cost than big-ag. The MGU feeds the kids and their families fresh low-cost or free leafy-greens and herbs in the lunchroom and provides a mechanism to sell the crops at farmer's markets and to local chefs. The funds are used to pay for all the expenses and any excess cash can be used to fund other school programs.
"For the last five years we have been helping dozens of families and hundreds of kids, of all ages, lose weight, eliminate medications and change their behavior to live healthy and happy lives. We have seen entire families adapt to a healthier lifestyle as they continue to participate in our weekly Fit 'n FUN Club activities, community walks, culinary and nutrition education and other engagement tools we have developed as part of our classroom and after-school curriculum, as well as our summer day camp enrichment program," says Shae Gawlak, Founder and Executive Director of Fit2beKids, a non-profit organization located in Southern California, with chapters in multiple states including Alaska, California and Colorado.
Prevo Health Solutions Founder and Executive Producer of the America's Healthiest Clubs, Rick Ladendorf explains, "the government has and continues to play a huge role in the obesity crisis. Unfortunately, the government is the most unlikely source to actually fix the problem. So we did! Prevo has invested thousands of man hours developing a scalable solution to reduce obesity and eliminate food deserts and food insecurities by building bridges between the haves and the have-nots."
Think of us as modern day Robin Hood's, where those with the means are rewarded financially for their contributions to the community.
As a result, we have selected Fit2beKids as our community outreach partner and now offer a total solution that rewards investors and donors with a return on their investment and gives them the comfort of knowing 100% of their contribution will go toward helping people that are less fortunate.
The solution involves two components. The first of which is the Mobile Growable Unit (MGU) which is set-up in the schoolyard at no cost to the school and the second is the Fit2beKids "Seven Dimensions of Wellness" classroom and after-school curriculum. When done properly, the school educates, feeds and changes behavior while as a bonus, receives a consistent cash-flow each month, to spend on whatever the school needs.
