This year the fourth grade social action focus has been to identify ways to increase freedom for the people of Philadelphia. Based on the location of Sankofa Freedom Academy in Frankford-Kensington area. 

SIGN THIS PETITION TO INCREASE FREE AND AFFORDABLE FRESH and HEALTHY FOOD OPTIONS in the FRANKFORD-KENSINGTON AREA of Philadelphia!!!

After observing and surveying, it has become clear that there is a shortage of fresh and healthy food options. Parents, scholars, and community members have expressed a need for local affordable grocery stores and produce markets. This will alleviate both health and cost risks that plague the our community.

Thus far, Sankofa scholars have written to the president of Family Dollar, who is constructing a store next to our school, to request that the business provide more fresh and affordable fruits and vegetables. Family Dollar strives to, "ensure customers, [who] work hard to provide for their families, the ability to make a whole meal or a quick snack with quality items they can trust." Therefore, Sankofa is holding them accountable.

SIGN THIS PETITION TO LET YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVES KNOW YOU SUPPORT our MISSION of providing FOOD FREEDOM in Philadelphia!!
