We’re only a month into 2019, and Trap Garden has already been gettin’ to the money!
We’ve received a grant from the Kroger Community Foundation, and we’re excited about what the grant means for our programming this year. For more than 30 years, Kroger has been supporting nonprofits that are focused on ending hunger, improving food security and bringing balanced meals to families who need it most.
Part of our work in educating the community about healthier lifestyles involves live cooking demonstrations and our FRSH Bites video series. This educational aspect sets the foundation for community members to take what they’ve seen from our videos or demos and start making healthy changes.
One of our demos and videos this year will focus on creative meals using food items near spoilage. This project is directly in alignment with Kroger’s Zero Waste Zero Hunger initiative, and one we hope will make strides towards eliminating food waste.
A Trap Garden goal this year is to demonstrate creativity and versatility in food items. People often don’t step outside of their culinary comfort zones because of food cost, uncertainty about where to purchase the items, or inability to cook the food properly. This grant allows us to fund demos and videos, all while using items that are probably in your local Kroger.
We want y’all to be comfortable buying, cooking and eating fresh foods. Thanks to Kroger’s support of Trap Garden, we’ll help you get one step closer.
Special thanks to the Kroger Community Foundation.
