Feed Our Soul is a movement for the community bringing homegrown produce directly to food desert neighborhoods. We provide a safe space for students to learn about gardening, as well as cooking their own produce. By cultivating food onsite through hydroponic technology, the harvest is 100% locally sourced, while using sustainable resources to reduce harmful emissions and protecting the planet. Our nutritional program focuses on students learning to grow, eat, share and connect through a direct and natural food supply.
