Basic Needs

Description and Mission

Grow Well Missouri partners with food pantries, local organizations, and volunteers to establish food gardening programs that reach out to food pantry customers. By offering a selection of seeds, vegetable transplants, educational materials, and one-on-one advice, Grow Well Missouri helps those who use food pantries reap the many benefits of gardening.

Activities:

Our primary activities include 1.) the formation of local Wellness Groups to identify and develop solutions for high priority health and nutrition needs; 2.) offering gardening education in combination with garden seeds and other supplies to help people have productive food gardens; and 3.) the development of a peer network of food pantry directors, staff, and volunteers to increase learning and sharing among groups in Missouri.
