Family Futures is a nonprofit that works to create communities in which all children achieve their full potential. They do that by supporting children and strengthening families. Their programs, Connections and Healthy Families Kent County, focus on children under age five. They work with parents to understand their children’s development, support them every step of the way, and connect them to resources when needed. When we all set up children and families for success, communities thrive!
The Southeast Area Farmers’ Market provides a wide variety of local produce, cottage kitchen foods, personal care items, crafts and ready-to-eat foods. Our vendors are primarily women of color, home growers and residents of OKT’s targeted neighborhoods. In addition to providing access to healthy food, the market hosts meal preparation activities, workshops and guests from community organizations.
