$150,000 Matching Challenge

From now until December 31st, all donations will be matched up to $150,000 by the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation, JM Family Enterprises, and the Moss Foundation. Our programs rely on generous and loyal supporters like you to help us increase access to STEM education and fight food insecurity. Your gift will support our STEM education, food security, and future workforce development programs.

Marine Education Initiative (MEI) provides over 1,000 meals weekly to local soup kitchens and educates over 100 students every month about marine conservation and sustainable agriculture. Our Aquaponics Center is a necessary facility in Delray Beach and is poised to make a difference in the near future. We are seeking to implement another grow stack in our facility, which would enable us to provide another 1,500 meals per week to local soup kitchens and launch a workforce development program. This program is aimed to establish an immersive learning environment, specifically designed to facilitate educational experiences with regard to sustainable agriculture, supply chain operations, plant biology, and cutting-edge technology within the context of vertical farming. This exposure will instill a profound appreciation for vertical farming among young adults, while concurrently serving as an inspirational catalyst for prospective careers within the agricultural industry.
