ORGANIZATION: FOOD FOR THE CURE

Our mission is to create programs that teach people how organic food may improve our health and to give free organic food to cancer patients in the Kansas City Metro Area.

Food for the Cure is trying to fill a much-needed gap in our food supply and healthcare system. With your help on a committee dedicated to fundraising and expanding our reach into the minds of people that don't know we exist; we will become the non-profit that our community and cancer patients in the Kansas City Metro need us to be.

Our goals for 2023 is to fundraise to achieve a total of $20,000 dollars to not only expand and own vital land to grow on but, also unlock another $20,000 to further our expansion and produce amounts year after year.

Please apply and help us succeed not only today but for years to come!

Description

Here at Food for the Cure we are a small non profit with a huge heart. We currently grow an organic style garden at the organic community garden located at the St. Peter and All Saint Episcopal Church (located in the Red Bridge Area) every year. We take all the organic produce that we grow and give it to Cancer Patients that would like to have it to help in their battle with cancer completely free of charge. In 2020 we were able to give 220 pounds of food to 7 Cancer Patients. In 2021 we were allowed to expand to 2 whole plots. That will measure a whopping 48'x30'. We run on 100 percent volunteers and now more than ever we need your help with the garden. So please signup and volunteer today! With the power of Community we can.
