Renaissance West Community Initiative (RWCI) & The Bulb

Sep 10, 2019

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. Their mission is to provide access to (mosty) local, fresh and healthy produce as well as education on health and wellness to vulnerable and underserved neighborhoods in our local communities.  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.

Please, take a minute to click on the links above and learn more about these two extraordinary organizations doing “real work” to improve the lives of others.
