Miracle-Gro is connecting 1 million kids to healthy food & gardening
We believe in growing more than gardens.
We believe in growing a healthy mind, body, and spirit for over 1 million underserved children through healthy food and gardening. Through the work of Gro More Good, we’re able to partner with like-minded nonprofits to connect the benefits of healthy food and gardens to the children who need it most.
“It’s important we provide as many opportunities as possible for children to connect with the natural world around them,” said Jim Hagedorn, chairman and CEO, ScottsMiracle-Gro. “As more and more children spend less time outside and have less understanding of where their food comes from, we have an obligation to help reconnect children to gardening and the outdoors for their positive growth and well-being.”
No Kid Hungry
Ends childhood hunger through programs that provide kids with the food they need.
By 2023, Gro More Good will provide up to 4.5 million* nutritious meals to children in need. We’re also donating Miracle-Gro Twelve Indoor Growing Systems to add more fresh food to children’s meals at grantee organizations across the country.
Together, Miracle-Gro & No Kid Hungry are also encouraging home gardeners to purchase our canvas Harvest Donation Bag (each bag sold equals 20 meals for kids*) and fill it with extra produce to donate to a local food pantry.
National Head Start Association
Serving as the voice for one million at-risk children, the National Head Start Association advocates on behalf of Head Start and the early childhood education community.
Our work together provides select preschools with edible gardens and equips high-need families with home garden kits in food desert communities. We’re also providing instructive workshops and webinars to educate children, their families, and teachers on gardening skills to carry for a lifetime.
Garden-grown food feeds more than just the belly of a child. It feeds their emotional, physical, and social health. When we grow more gardens, we grow more opportunities for millions of children.
