  • About

    Our mission is to generate hope for individuals & families by creating access to quality nutrition; providing relief, rehabilitation, and development opportunities; and strengthening community collaboration.

    We believe providing fresh vegetables to families each week in the backpacks is incredibly important, which is why we are partnering with YMCA Camp St. Croix. The creation of a sustainable garden that will supply local programs with fresh vegetables year-round.

    This initiative has been able to support the following groups:
    The Hudson Backpack Program
    River Falls Backpack Program
    River Falls United Methodist Church
    New Richmond Backpack Program
    Somerset Backpack Program
    Lakeland Food Harvest
    Baldwin-Woodville Backpack Program

    With the goal of providing important nutrients to our communities, the gardens include lettuce, radishes, spinach, carrots, kale, Swiss chard, turnips, green beans, cabbage, peppers, summer squash, cucumbers, onions, bok choi, tomatoes, and melons. We’re excited for another year of planting and harvesting reaping the benefits of the generous resources from our donors for the hungry in the St. Croix River Valley.

    Backpack Programs
    Several school backpack programs are feeding hungry children across the St. Croix River Valley. These programs send backpacks with nonperishable, child-friendly meals and food vouchers home with participants on weekends and throughout the summer. We assist these organizations with funding and fresh produce so they can continue to provide help to families in need.
