Nick Cutsumpas, “Farmer Nick,” Reads Maddi’s Fridge, Gives Apples to Preschoolers
Urban gardener Nick Cutsumpas is passionate about leaving the earth greener than when he found it and giving people the knowledge and confidence they need to create green spaces. Known as “Farmer Nick,” he’s also a host on Netflix’s Emmy-nominated show Instant Dream House and a social influencer who is a friend of Blessings in a Backpack.
Nick joined us in our ‘Feeding Kids in Your Own Backyard’ campaign in support of World Hunger Day on May 28. He met with the preschoolers at the Goodman Center in Madison, Wisconsin, in May, giving each child an apple and a Blessings in a Backpack’s food bag that over 1,000 Madison public school kids receive each weekend. He also read them the children’s storybook Maddi’s Fridge.
Nick stressed the importance of eating healthy and, as illustrated in the book, helping a friend who might not have enough food at home.
