You can support farmers with refugee backgrounds and families in our community at the same time through the summer Grow Local, Give Local campaign.

What is Grow Local, Give Local?

Each summer, Fresh International Gardens (FIG) and St. Francis House Food Pantry collaborate for our annual Grow Local, Give Local campaign.

When you give to Grow Local, Give Local, your contribution purchases fresh produce from FIG and Grow North Farm and donates it to St. Francis House Food Pantry. This means every dollar goes twice as far, providing income for recently resettled refugees and nutritious food for families.

To support refugees and hungry families, choose Grow Local, Give Local from the dropdown menu.

Thank you for making our 2023 Grow Local, Give Local campaign another wild success! In 4 months, we raised enough money to purchase 6,000 pounds of fresh produce!

Last year, you raised more than $30,000, providing months of income to the farmers at FIG and thousands of pounds of vegetables like turnips, kale, and radishes to St. Francis House. This supplement to the St. Francis House food boxes helps close the gap for families in our community, ensuring that they never have to choose between paying rent and having enough nutritious food to eat.
