Grow Jackson believes in the power of food for many reasons. We believe access to food is food justice, and we believe that achieving food justice is crucial in our work to achieve social and racial justice.
We also believe communities come together around food and communities are stronger when everyone in them has healthy food to eat. We know that having the opportunity to choose what kinds of foods to eat is important for families, as is being able to access enough food for everyone at the table.
Grow Jackson works so that people have these opportunities to access food. Our Food Reclamation program will make healthy food options accessible for more people. The Grow Jackson Community Garden program will bring the production of those healthy foods into more neighborhoods and help us all achieve food freedom.
