"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food"
The Grow Program Overview:
The Grow Program is a community resource that provides volunteers to work in partnership with communities and community centers. Our goal is that community members, who are most knowledgeable about the specific needs of their community, use the Grow Program’s volunteers and partner organizations to carry out their mission.
Our mission is to prevent and manage chronic conditions through nutrition while we grow community, grow healthy, and grow together.
If you are a community or community center interested in working with the Grow Program, please contact our directors about opportunities to collaborate.
