Growing Food that Matters

Social service providers all over the United States are looking for ways to increase access to fresh, healthy foods. Indoor agriculture can be a vehicle for social change which is why we want to help you be successful in your indoor farming endeavors. As part of our partnership development approach, each nonprofit is provided a fundraising toolkit to help you engage your donor community in all the meaningful, innovative work that you do. We also provide access to in-kind expert fundraising resources, best practice information and peer-to-peer sharing opportunities. Please contact us directly for additional information.

We believe in the power of fresh food and bringing it to those that need it most. We live to work with people like you, who are trying to make a difference in the lives of real people and, hopefully, make the world a better place.

Our Flex Farms have greatly enhanced our ability to provide fresh, long-lasting produce to the food pantry recipients. We have been able to provide lettuce even when there is no other produce available from donations and our other resources. This has been a great way to encourage good nutrition at our food pantry, and demonstrate love by giving the best we have to offer.
