Growing Hope programs are transformative, educational, inclusive, and are created and delivered through a racial equity lens. We prioritize serving populations that have the most barriers to accessing fresh and affordable food, and our programs empower participants to make eating and purchasing decisions that meet their personal wellness goals. Our programs enable local growers and food businesses to participate in and benefit from a thriving local food system.

We concentrate on four sectors of the local food system in which we can make the most impact. Each of these four Impact Areas span the entirety of the local food system from grower to buyer, and everything in between.
