GrowGood leverages the power of urban farming to unite people, to create hope for underserved groups, and to lay foundations for healthy communities, beginning with the city of Bell — a “food desert” according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

- LIVE ·2015 Grants Challenge
GrowGood, Inc., a non-profit organization, has worked since 2011 in partnership with the Salvation Army's Bell Homeless Shelter to transform the 1.5-acre parcel of fallow land adjacent to the Shelter into a small farm. With $100,000, GrowGood will launch its UCLA award-winning social enterprise business plan to build a greenhouse on-site to grow and sell produce year-round to LA’s finest restaurants. The social enterprise business will employ Shelter residents, many of whom are veterans.
