The Growing Project needs a truck to continue to bring fresh, nourishing, local foods to under-resourced families in Larimer County.
This project receives all donations immedately, regardless of funding goal.
What is this project about?
Who We Are: The Growing Project is a nonprofit (501-c-3) organization founded in Fort Collins in 2008 committed to making fresh, nourishing, regional food accessible to everyone, particularly under-resourced families in Larimer county.
What We Do: Our 3 outreach programs promote community gardening, advocacy, and education:
- Urban Foods Outreach: Creates residential gardens, where excess produce is donated to those in need.
- Garden Time: A Horticulture Therapy program for at-risk youth.
- Glean Team: Emergency food rescue effort coordinating with local farmers to glean excess produce from the fields and donate it to families in need.
Why Our Work Matters: Since 2000, Colorado has experienced the 3rd largest increase in food insecurity in the nation. In that same time period, the Larimer County Food Bank more than tripled the number of people it serves. These our people in our community who have limited or uncertain access to nutritionally adequate foods.
What We Need: Keeping up with our SIXTEEN gardens and THREE outreach programs without a vehicle of our own is stunting our ability to grow and create a positive impact at the rate we are able. Help us raise $25,000 to purchase a reliable truck and a full insurance policy so we can keep on truckin’ bringing good food to our community!
The project goal of this project is to raise $25,000
