Updates on our activities and progress.
Looking forward to 2023!
- We are currently operating two days a week, doing deliveries on Saturdays and Sundays, and we want to continue this into 2023!
- We want to expand and continue to offer items like water, hand warmers, toothbrushes, toothpaste, Wet Wipes, and first aid items.
- We believe in direct aid, and want to continue to offer money to people we have built relationships with who are transitioning into housing. It is so much easier to get the things you need when a down payment and first month's rent is taken care of.
- We would like to continue to expand the yurt building project to provide safe, lockable shelter and storage to those living outside.
- We would like to continue to cater community events and offer occasional cooking and/or skill-sharing classes open to the public, including the communities we serve.
- Upon securing more long term cooking space, we licensed the kitchen! Our hope is to offer this space to adjacent food projects down the road.
- By growing our own food, we determined we could invest in our own growth figuratively and literally, supplementing our produce costs and having organic, fresh vegetables in abundance, while also teaching each other how to tend to the plants. This garden was a huge success in 2021, and although we had some setbacks and have a limited amount for harvest this year, it will be back up and running next summer in full abundance.
- The F12 garden is a 0.25 acre lot located in St. Paul with abundant water access donated by our lovely neighbors. Last year we planted carrots, kale, chard, cabbage, tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower and squash, along with tons of herbs. Some of the ingredients were used in encampment meals fresh, and some we were able to preserve. We are still working through our squash!
- One of our strongest partnerships is with North Country Food Alliance (NCFA), who help facilitate a relationship with local farmers who in turn donate large amounts of locally-grown produce for us to use in the kitchen.
- Their gleaning program brings us final produce that otherwise would have been rejected by buyers and markets, and thus saves it from becoming waste!
- For the second year, we are currently receiving a portion of a grant NCFA was awarded to help cover some of our food costs and buy infrastructure for our commercial kitchen.
- This year through Shared Grounds we have received CSAs from a group of regional BIPOC farmers dedicated to sustainably grown produce.
- Some of this produce went to the meals, some went to local undocumented families, and some was offered to volunteers as gratitude for their time and energy.
