#Familyhood is driven by two main motto’s: 1) The Friends of school motto: which states: “every school shall have a student government association, a Parent Teacher Association and Alumni Association.”

Since many schools do no have these three basic school based organizations, The Friends of School motto utilizes 1st Saturdays to recruit new members to these organizations and to share updates.

#Familyhood promotes these three main organizations to collaborate. This collaboration is called #Familyhood.

The second motto: 2) is called The Mo’ Better Food motto: which states, ” every school shall have a garden, a farmers market and a grocery store.” 1st Saturdays promotes #Familyhood to come together every month to promote their schools garden, farmers market and future grocery store.

1stSaturdays also welcomes information booths from local businesses/organizations to share resources/opportunities to #Familyhood.

#Familyhood is an inter-generational approach of increasing sustainability from within the community.

We are seeking local, national and partners that share our two motto’s. We realize #Familyhood is not an overnight solution. Since, #Familyhood is based on increasing governance from within our schools – the collaboration of (S.G.A +PTA + ALUMNI), the direct benefits will take some time to realize from within a neighborhood.

We estimate around 5 years.
Because, 5 years will enable some of the students involved now to eventually graduate and return as Alumni to advance the Mo’ Better Food projects (garden, farmers market, grocery store).
