Great Give Day!
May 9, 2019
Great Give Day is a 24-hour online fundraiser established by The Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque to support local nonprofits and build a stronger community. Convivium Urban Farmstead is excited to participate in this event for the very first time!
Convivium’s mission is to create community around food – growing, preparing, preserving and, of course, enjoying food. To us, creating community around 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.
This includes nutrition education, after-school programming, designated garden boxes that are free for the picking, and hosting a variety of community events that highlight food from different cultures.
Help us increase our outreach programming by supporting us with a gift on Great Give Day. Your contribution will help us provide urban farm field trips and healthy snacks for kids, nutrition-based cooking classes for food-insecure families, and garden supplies to grow over 600 lbs of produce, free for the community to harvest.
