Fair Food Matters serves thousands of people every year, through school-based and community gardens; a commercial kitchen; dozens of food-related events and educational programs; and lots of great collaborations (such as the Southwest Michigan Harvest Festival, Future Chefs, and Farms to K). See the testimonials below to meet a few of those people.
In the Growing Matters Garden, we teach children and adults about urban, organic gardening at two sites: The main garden on North Westnedge, and the Roots of Knowledge Garden at Woodward Elementary School. Please click the "play" icon to hear the Greenman family talk about their experience in the garden!
The Can-Do Kitchen provides both commercial kitchen space (at very affordable rates!) and business incubator services to area food entrepreneurs. Click the "play" icon to hear Kara and Denise Steeley (aka "The Dough Chicks") tell their story!
We are passionate about local food and the positive impact it's making on the Greenman family, Denise and Kara, and so many people here in Southwest Michigan. If you share that passion, please consider making a tax-deductible donation (by December 31) of $10, $25, $50, $100, $250, or any amount you choose.
