There are parts of Growing Power that are easy to see and to understand their impact. For example; the people we employ, the healthy food we grow and the gardens we plant. But there is another part of our mission that might be harder to see, but we believe it is a vital part of what we do. It's called the Growing Food and Justice for all Initiative (GFJI).
Growing Power is a national non-profit organization supporting people from diverse backgrounds, and the environments in which they live, by helping to provide equal access to healthy, safe and affordable food. We do this by providing hands-on training, on-the-ground demonstration, outreach, and technical assistance through the development of Community Food Systems. Those systems help people grow, process, market and distribute food in a sustainable manner.
