Bonton is a food desert – but Bonton Farms is healing the neighborhood, one heart at a time. SHARE and spread the word! This video raises vital awareness Bonton and food deserts like it. In Dallas alone, one of the most affluent cities US, there are 40 food deserts just like Bonton – suffering the same fate. Please consider partnering with Bonton Farms as they expand their model to other areas of Dallas and invest in the lives of men, women and children from all walks of life. Specifically, this campaign will be funding Bonton Farms Market and office space for farm administration. The amount of clerical work required to manage a farm, and outreach programs described in this video, is massive… currently Trog and other Bonton employees have no dedicated space to conduct this vital part of their mission – give people the nutrients they need to be the best version of themselves they can be. So far, InspireMore users have raised $583 for Bonton Farms – share and spread the word! Matthew Trog Trogdon

“Investing in the soil yields healthy plants; Investing in the soul yields healthy people.”
There are food deserts all across America, but an urban farm in South Dallas is changing everything for residents of the neighborhood.
In the Bonton community of South Dallas, the nearest grocery store is a 3 hour bus ride away. 63% of residents lack personal transportation and rely on corner stores stocked with processed food to feed themselves and their children.
Bonton Farms was created by like-minded, hardworking people to impact a community where cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke, and childhood obesity run rampant without access to healthy foods. They provide vegetables, fruits, eggs, and honey to a community plagued by poverty.
It is a noble cause that deserves everyone’s respect! So help us give this farm the resources they need to continue transforming the community. All you have to do is watch and share InspireMore stories. The more you do that, the more advertisers pay us, and the more we are able to give to this important cause!
