Backyard Bounty Food Bank Project

Fresh food for all! Recognizing that not everyone in Guelph has access to fresh, organic food, we have created a unique urban agriculture program to increase community awareness about sustainable urban gardening while providing nutritious, locally-grown vegetables to low-income community members in need with our partner, the Guelph Food Bank. We want to improve accessibility to nutritious, whole food while creating opportunities for the community to get “up close and personal” with the process of food growth! Our organic farmers will grow food for 30-50 people in need each season on donated land, delivering freshly harvested, organic vegetables to the Food Bank every week. We require funding assistance to support the project and our dedicated farmers.
