What a nutrient-dense and inspirationally-packed 2-for-1 volunteer effort today, getting to take park in The Bulb’s mobile food market at the Renaissance West Community!
If you’ve never been to the Renaissance West Community Initiative, or have yet to learn about it, please go and please do. It is flat-out impressive what they have pulled together in such a short time here in Charlotte. RWCI uses a holistic community redevelopment approach, focusing on multiple critical factors, including mixed-income housing, educational opportunities, youth and adult development programs, as well as health and wellness services.
The Bulb is a spectacular grass-roots non-profit founded by Alisha Pruett six-years ago.

As BIG fans of healthy eating (yes, we love our veggies!), we were awestruck by the incredible variety of amazing fruits and vegetables that they provided any RWC resident who stopped by.
