Farming Hope Initiative
Community Food Systems. From farm to table, food can help to transform communities. We invite your family to think about how community and food are interconnected. Check out this video about Farming Hope Initiative, a job-training program that provides work for people experiencing homelessness and builds community around systems of food.

Food brings people together. Human connection occurs at every step of the food growing process. From seedling to vegan taco night, the Farming Hope Initiative uses food as a catalyst for community change.
Let's Talk
After watching the video about Farming Hope, use the questions below to kick-start a great conversation with your family:

  • What inspired you about Farming Hope? Did you notice anything that you may not have thought of before?

  • Think of a time when you experienced food bringing people together. What do you remember most about that experience?

  • Why is it important to know where our food comes from? What about the people who grow it or prepare it?

  • Bonus! Create a meal with community. Cook up a meal with your friends over video chat or plan a socially distanced picnic with a few friends.

Do Something
Regrow Your Produce
Regrow veggies to start your own home garden. Did you know much of the produce you buy from the grocery store can be regrown from scraps at home? The next time your family cooks a meal, save the ends of your lettuce and the left over avocado pit and put them to good use!

Connect to your food. Growing food at home can help you stay connected to the plants that nourish you! Check out these tips from the Food Revolution Network to learn about how you can regrow fresh produce at home.

Community Connection

Support Chicago Farmers - Eat Local! Supporting local agriculture helps to create healthy communities, promote economic opportunities in disinvested neighborhoods, and address food insecurity. The Urban Growers Collective is an organization of Chicago farms working to develop community based food systems in where food is grown, prepared and distributed within their home communities.

Your family can support the Urban Growers Collective by participating in their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program!
