It takes a community to feed a community.
By donating to Convivium Urban Farmstead, you are enabling us to help to help others learn more about healthy food – where it comes from and how to prepare it. To us, improving life through food also means providing tools and education about healthy food choices to children and adults who are struggling with food access and the adverse health effects of highly processed foods.
Your donation today will go to support the following programs:
Free Weekly Casseroles
Your donation provides wholesome meals for local individuals and families. COVID-19, and its effects on the economy, exposed and increased a lot of the food needs in our community. In response, Convivium launched a free, weekly casserole program which provides over 200 meals each week for pickup and delivery – many of which are made with ingredients we grew ourselves. Donate here.
Gardening & Cooking Classes
Your donation provides kids and adults the opportunity to learn how to grow and prepare their own food. Our classes are designed to inspire confidence, creativity, and self-sufficiency in the kitchen and garden, as well as to empower participants in their pursuit of a more wholesome and secure food experience. Donate here.
Free Produce in Neighborhood Gardens
Your donation helps to increase the amount of free vegetables we are able to grow and harvest for the community. Convivium plants and tends raised-bed garden boxes around the North End neighborhood. The produce from these beds is free for anyone who would like to harvest it in effort to make healthy food more affordable and accessible, especially in this neighborhood. Donate here.
Free Food Box Distribution
Your donation supports our bi-weekly food box giveaway, done in partnership with St. Stephen’s Food Bank. On the second and fourth Tuesday of each month, we host a food box distribution from our patio for low-to-moderate income families and individuals. Boxes include a variety of dairy and produce and are available starting at 3pm until supplies last. Donate here.
Thank you to our generous supporters.
