Why Do We Exist?

As an organization, we believe that everyone deserves access to fresh, healthy food. We understand that growing food with our community cultivates beauty in so many ways. Our aims are to empower our community members, provide access to those in need, and give everyone an opportunity to grow and eat quality food. We believe this will contribute to the resiliency of our food system and give more individuals the opportunity to thrive.


Our mission is to empower people to connect to their food and community by revitalizing urban spaces and building a resilient food culture. The Green Urban Lunch Box envisions a strong network of communities centered on the cultivation of food.
