Feed Our Soul LA started this petition to Sweetgreen and

Feed Our Soul is a restorative justice organization focused on creating a foundation of sustainable policies, educational programs and green-environmental experiences for communities endangered by food access.  1 out of every 3 children in Los Angeles are living in a food insecure environment.  Youth and families are suffering from food related illnesses; such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.  By changing the environment, it's proven that you can lower these health risks as well as increase cognitive development in students with higher test scores, cultivate a sharing economy, grow a strong community workforce. 

We believe it's every human's birthright to have access to a fresh and natural food supply.  We accomplish this by establishing hydroponic vertical community farms, hosting free produce distribution sites to families and homeless, and teaching youth and families how to cook their homegrown produce.  Through sustainable technology, we aim to expand urban agriculture to feed communities with local organic food.  We empower people to control their food environment and we inspire communities to work together to build a brighter, healthier and safer food industry for youth and families.   

  1. Food Access - Increase produce distribution sites in South LA
  2. Education - Promote nutritional literacy and healthy, cultural cooking
  3. Sustainable Growing - Build the first hydroponic farm in South LA

Our goal is to create more opportunities for food equity and to close the gap on food access, by teaching our members how to use their resources around them, which in most cases is very limited, to still create a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.  Furthermore, we aim to create food access opportunities through acts of restorative justice and economic empowerment. Feed Our Soul aims to rebuild our communities by providing self-sustainable tools which promote healthy and nutritious diets to food-desert neighborhoods.

Now, more then ever, you can make a difference.  Help South L.A. grow our own food!  Make your mark - join the movement.  Sign the petition today!
