Feed Two Birds brings fresh organic produce, grown by individuals experiencing homelessness in our transitional employment program, to other underserved individuals across Santa Cruz County. During this unprecedented crisis, safe access to fresh, organic food for vulnerable populations is especially important.
Please consider making a gift that will:
1) Enable Homeless Garden Project trainees to grow 7,000 pounds of healthy organic vegetables and fruits, and
2) Allow HGP to distribute the boxed produce to more than a thousand people through local community non-profits.
Through the Feed Two Birds program, your donation has double the impact. Each dollar you donate supports the Project’s transitional employment and job training program and allows for the sharing of food grown at the garden throughout the community.
"I find myself feeling a lot happier and uplifted as I am eating the produce that’s come from the Homeless Garden Project … This is honestly a cycle of endless goodness - people who are homeless on the streets that are taking time out of their lives help themselves as well as to grow produce for people who do not have access to it. … that’s something remarkable.
