Mission

The Greenleaf Foundation is focused on building a sense of home for individuals within our communities. We seek to engage members of the community by developing agrihood based living communities that enable immediate access to healthy food options, provide outdoor programming for youth, and education opportunities. At Greenleaf we believe everyone is happier and feels at home when we share a quality healthy meal together. Meals together lead to smiles together. Once we are able to share a meal within the community, we are then able to help expand our impact through our mobility program which looks at providing additional transportation resources to families in need.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Food access is determined by a variety of factors. The income of people experiencing hunger, the racial or cultural background of certain populations, and the distance between people and food markets. Consumer choices about food spending and diet are likely to be influenced by the accessibility and affordability of food retailers—travel time to shopping, availability of healthy foods, and food prices. Some people and places, especially those with low income, may face greater barriers in accessing healthy and affordable food retailers, which may negatively affect diet and food security.

Charting impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

The Greenleaf Foundation strives to create easier accessibility to healthy food options through the development of agrihoods throughout our community. An agrihood is an organized community that integrates agriculture into a residential neighborhood. The purpose of these communities is to facilitate food production while at the same time providing recreation for members of the community.

The Greenleaf Foundation's strategy for making this happen is through developing Greenleaf Community Farms. Our farm program develops and maintains agrihoods within multi-family residential properties. Our farm manager develops a strategic farm plan that seeks to grow and distribute free, healthy produce to our communities. Programs such as our Resident Liaison and Volunteer Night work to educate and connect our community around sustainable agriculture.

Through the development of a farm team and community engagement opportunities we are able to plan and develop new projects consistently.

Our foundation sets continuous goals to ensure we are impacting our community. These metrics include tracking the weight of produce distributed, tracking liaison and volunteer hours, creating engaging community events, tracking our food waste intake to lower our carbon foot print, and setting goals for farm program expansion.

Our farm program has been incredibly successful in a short period of time. We began tracking our metrics in January 2019 and we are currently making excellent headway in surpassing our goals. Since January we have distributed 2,417.52 pounds of food, collected 747lbs of food waste, completed 798 volunteer hours, and expanded our cultivated acreage to 2 acres.
