Garden Raised Bounty (GRuB) SNAP Ed Program
For 20+ years, GRuB successfully implemented innovative programs driven by its mission to grow healthy food, people and community. GRuB works alongside and empower people who are experiencing food insecurity to grow their own culturally appropriate food, increase physical and mental wellbeing and resilience and strengthen community. Currently, GRuB serves 1,500+ people annually through 8 programs. Programs are led by and serve GRuB priority audiences: children, youth, families with limited incomes, tribal communities, military veterans, and seniors experiencing hunger.
Program activities include youth empowerment and employment training on GRuB’s 3 acre sustainable farm, growing produce to donate to Thurston County Food Bank, building free backyard gardens with and for families with low income, sharing gardening resources and training to ensure a successful bounty and so much more.
