Social Sharing will be enabled when the project is launched.
We are a 501(c)(3) social service and job building program for chronically unemployed and hungry families. We train and equip people within the community to grow whole fresh foods for themselves and to sell their home grown produce for economic empowerment.
This crowdfunding project is sponsored and managed by Dorothy Pitman Hughes. Ms. Hughes is a child-welfare advocate, African American activist, public speaker, author, pioneering African American small business owner, and mother of three daughters. She was a co-founder of Ms. Magazine in 1971. She organized the first shelter for battered women in New York City and co-founded the New York City Agency for Child Development (now the New York City Administration for Children's Services).
Funding will be used to train the unemployed to grow and produce whole foods for themselves and their families. Contributions are tax deductible.
