Fair Food Matters
Fair Food Matters works to help improve community health, empower women, support small businesses, fight obesity and diabetes, prevent hunger, foster youth development and increase academic achievement through local food.
Our programs and collaborations are designed to bring about lasting, systemic change in the way we feed ourselves, our families and our community. They include:
- The Growing Matters Garden, an urban garden program for children and adults
- The Woodward School Garden, a school-based educational garden
- The Can-Do Kitchen, the region’s only licensed commercial kitchen/business incubator
- The Douglass Farmers’ Market, serving residents in Kalamazoo’s Northside neighborhood
- Common Ground Community Garden Project, providing free assistance to gardens that help bring fresh food to underserved neighborhoods
- The Southwest Michigan Community Harvest Festival, an annual celebration of Michigan’s harvest.
