Soulful Seeds is a social and environmental, grassroots non-profit dedicated to reducing food insecurity by developing and managing urban gardens. Our gardens provide fresh produce, inclusive outdoor spaces, improve the biodiversity of the landscape, and promote health and wellbeing

Mission & Operational Pillars

Our mission is to reduce food insecurity by providing healthy, sustainable food to the most vulnerable people in our community. Soulful Seeds has four core pillars in which we operate by: Community Gardens, to grow and donate food; Neighborhood Gardens, to grow food as close to populations in need as possible; Education, to teach people how to grow, harvest, and prepare food sustainably and affordably; and Workforce Development, to invest in future employment opportunities that help move people out of poverty.

Our Model

We know food distribution programs alone cannot solve food insecurity in our community. Our model focuses on multiple facets of the food insecurity issue to reduce a household’s chances of experiencing food insecurity again. Our model empowers people through the garden by teaching them to grow their own food, providing tools to prepare and preserve the food they harvest, and developing skills that will make them more employable.

Who we Serve

We serve neighbors experiencing homelessness and food insecurity. All of our programs are and produce are provided to neighbors free of charge. We prioritize services for campus neighbors and distribute overflow through two food pantries serving high-need zip codes.
