Mission Statement

The mission of Soul Food Project is to foster wellness in our community by increasing food access with our urban farms, offering hands on development for youth and giving local artists space to showcase their work.

Description

SFP was founded in 2017 as a grassroots organization. It began as a community garden at our Temple Ave location. In the summer of 2018, youth were introduced to our work when our founder Danielle was asked to run a youth farming program. Youth Grow Indy, our summer farming experience, was created that summer. This program hires middle school and high school students to help out during the summer while also helping them to develop their own skills. We grow leaders, not farmers. In the fall of 2018, planning of the Avondale Meadows Farmers Market began and it was launched the summer of 2019. Entering into the 2020 season, Youth Grow Indy is still going, the farmers market is entering the second year, and a new growing site is being prepared.
