11.28.2023 Matching Donation Announcement • Giving Tuesday
|Matching Donation Announcement
Many students come to school hungry or fueled by foods that do not support their nutritional needs. GROW is on a mission to connect youth to healthy food and nature through hands-on garden-based learning to nourish growing minds and bodies. We know that the best way to encourage a child to make a healthy food choice is to involve them in the process from seed to table. That is why we host garden lessons at 9 area public schools, farm experiences, greenhouse field trips, Kids Cooking Challenges and Open Garden programs. In 2023 our programming has engaged over 3,000 youth in the Coulee Region in discovering where their food comes from, how to access healthy foods and how make healthy food choices.
ANNOUNCING: A group of GROW supporters have pooled their resources to create a matching fund. The first $2,500 donated will be matched. That means you can double your impact by donating today! Help us reach our year end goal to continue making a positive impact. We need the support of the community to make these opportunities possible. Please consider donating to make a difference in the health of the youth we serve today and for a lifetime.
November 28th is #GivingTuesday. People all over the globe are choosing to live generously. If you are able to give of our resources, please consider supporting the students who benefit from GROW’s school garden programs, Open Gardens, Kids Cooking Challenges, at Farm Camp and in the greenhouse. We believe in the positive impact we can make on youth by helping them to get their hands in the dirt and letting them lead the way to a healthier future.
Please support GROW. There are many ways to show your support. You can give of any extra resources, you can share your time, you can also help by spreading the word of the good things that happen in the gardens. A simple social media post or share is a wonderful way to help the greater community to realize the importance of this work. Liza Ware supports GROW to be part of the good work happening. She shares, “I support GROW with my time and resources because their programming provides hands-on learning about healthy food and nature. This helps children build healthy practices for themselves and the environment.”
