By making the growing process highly visible in urban spaces, urban farming does a lot to educate those who otherwise may not have the opportunity to learn about it.
Across more than 150 gardens, our farmers grew over 30,000 pounds of fresh produce during the 2016 growing season.
According to Feeding America, 1 and 8 people struggles with hunger.
For those who do not know, food insecurity can be generally defined as a lack of access to nutirtionally adequate food. With our resources and ability to produce nutritionally adequate, healthy foods, we try to do everything we can to help fight against the issue of food insecurity.
Of the 5,980 pounds grown at Fenway Farms during the 2016 season, over 766 pounds was donated to Lovin’ Spoonfuls. Combined with donations from our many employee wellness partners, our gardens produced more than 2,500 pounds of produce for Lovin’ Spoonfuls.
We are thrilled to share all of the contributions we have made to address the issues we truly care about this past year. We’re hoping we can do even more in 2017, and encourage you to get out there and do the same!
