Welcome to Rock Soup Microgreens
Most food banks use their donations to BUY food and then distribute it to their clients.
The Rock Soup Greenhouse and Food Bank is different, we actually grow our own produce rather than buy it.
Every dollar donated, allows us to grow at least four dollars' worth of produce,
which then goes directly to help feed the needy.
Every dollar donated, does at least four dollars of good.
The First dollar goes directly to Rock Soup, which allows us to grow fresh microgreens,
The Second and Third dollars, come from microgreens grown by Rock Soup, and then donated to other local food banks,
The Fourth dollar comes from the government in the future, by way of a matching grant.
Help us grow
How do we do that??
We produce microgreens
following organic principles, using no GMO components, pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers.
We package them in plant based, compostable clam shells or bags to be sent out to our clients within a day from harvest.
All while giving our volunteers access to learning new skills, and providing our donors with healthy food and/or charitable donation receipts.
Microgreens are simply smaller versions of conventional herbs and vegetables. Essentially the same full-grown herb or vegetable, but just harvested at an earlier time.
They are used as a nutrition supplement, a visual enhancement, and a flavor and texture enhancement.
Microgreens not only add sweetness and spiciness to foods, they are some of the best superfoods that have many health benefits such as: anti-cancer, anti-diabetic and anti-aging properties, support cardiovascular health, strengthen the immune system, boost brain function, among many others.
