Help build this community processing kitchen & food biz incubator to provide healthy foods for our schools. We're almost there!
Our kids need your help and so do we!
If we can build the FEED Kitchens...
REAP Food Group will have a permanent home in which to process locally-grown fresh, fruits and veggies served to our school children, sustaining the Farm to School Snack program which serves the most economically-challenged elementary schools in Madison. Kids will eat red peppers, kohlrabi, butternut squash, and many other fruits and veggies, some for the very first time. Once FEED is built, our schools will be able to purchase minimally-processed, locally grown produce for their new salad bars, giving kids healthy lunch choices.
“When I first started with REAP Food Group, I was shocked that there were children in our schools who had never eaten a green salad!” remarked Sarah Elliott, REAP Food Group Farm to School Program Manager.
FEED Kitchens, with 5 community commercial kitchen spaces will expand production of healthy foods for everyone. We will be self-sustaining when open. We have the plan, the place to build it and almost all the funds needed to break ground on March 1, 2013.

FEED Kitchens needs you to finish the job. Your pledge will buy the equipment that we need to provide healthy food to kids in our schools. If we exceed our goal, then we can buy more and better equipment to make the work even easier.
