Tune in to NBC this Saturday, March 25 at noon, to watch Give host Jenna Bush Hager visit the Bay View Houses Farm!
Give is part of the NBC network’s programming block “The More You Know.” Give highlights the world of philanthropy by featuring the stories of high-impact nonprofit organizations around the country. Blair Underwood is the Executive Producer, and his co-host is Jenna Bush Hager.
In each episode, a celebrity ambassador visits two nonprofits that use innovation, best practices and dedication for change in their communities and the world. Give’s producers invited the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund to nominate two organizations that share the foundation’s mission – to increase access and opportunity for all New Yorkers.
On Saturday’s episode, Jenna visits Brooklyn to meet NEBHDCo at its Golden Harvest Client-Choice Food Pantry in Bed-Stuy and Green City Force’s Urban Farm Corps at New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) farm in Canarsie. These organizations work to increase access to healthy food and economic opportunity in New York City’s economically challenged neighborhoods. According to Laurie M. Tisch, President of the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, “we’re thrilled that our grantees are receiving this recognition.” Laurie Tisch will join Jenna, Blair and philanthropy consultant Joan Garry to discuss Jenna’s site visits.
