About food justice & Solid Ground’s food programs
We recognize that hunger and health disparities exist not due to lack of sufficient food, but to inequities built into the food system which disproportionately impact communities of color. Our Community Food Education (cooking and nutrition classes in schools, gardens and community organizations) and Food System Support work to support healthier places, communities and stories, and build equity in Seattle’s emergency food system. (For more info, read This is what food justice looks like: Access to affordable, healthy, culturally relevant foods.)
About Marra Farm
Solid Ground’s ¾-acre Giving Garden at Marra Farm, on historic urban farmland in South Park, grows more than 15,000 pounds of fresh, organic produce each year. The food grown at Marra Farm stays in South Park and nourishes the community through food banks, meal programs, and a Work Trade program.
