What We’re Doing:
- Making curbside deliveries of fresh produce to Stenton Family Manor, a homeless shelter for families, and other partner sites with high need.
- Continuing to provide Hope Kitchen graduates with Fresh Start Kits to scratch cook at home.
- Planting our gardens so that fresh produce continues to be available through the spring and summer. We grow across four growing spaces that have the capacity to produce thousands of pounds of produce. This time of year is critical to maximize production!
- Supporting one-on-one and online group education and providing technical assistance for urban producers around organic best practices including food safety measures that maximize Northwest food production by local producers this season.
- Adapting our current curriculum to support immediate online learning opportunities for students over the next few months.
- Developing curriculum and making plans for Farm Club, Garden Club, Land Lab, Hope Kitchen and other programming, so that we can continue to support high-quality scratch cooking, food production, tasting and eating opportunities with our program participants as soon as groups are able to come together again.
In 2019, Food Moxie provided over 400 non-duplicated individuals with programming that supports our mission of educating and inspiring people to grow, cook and eat healthy foods. This programming happened with groups at Stenton Family Manor emergency housing, Saul and MLK High Schools, and Awbury Arboretum youth and community garden elders.
