In 2017, Cultivate Abundance was founded to address the needs of low-income migrant farmworkers in Immokalee, Florida. Despite growing a significant amount of America's winter tomatoes and other produce, these workers experience food insecurity at a disproportionate rate. Immokalee is considered a food desert, which makes it difficult for these hardworking individuals to access nutritious and affordable food.
Cultivate Abundance increases access to healthy food by growing, collecting, and sharing fresh produce. Since 2018, we have distributed over 75 tons of fruits and vegetables, directly benefiting an average of 1,000 community members every week. The majority of beneficiaries are of Haitian, Guatemalan, and Mexican heritage.
Cultivate Abundance collaborates with local home gardeners, growing partners, and social service providers to carry out our shared mission in solidarity with those who grow our food.
