Two Years Later, I'm an Assistant Manager
By Maria Elena Soterani, Assistant Manager of Food Access
"One month into unemployment, The Growhaus opened its doors and offered me a job. I started packing food boxes, and two years later, I am the Assistant Manager of the Food Access Department.
Like me, I learned that many people in GES are immigrants and, unfortunately, are experiencing food insecurity. As a mother, it’s very fulfilling to know that I am helping other parents and caregivers provide food for their families. Food access is a cause close to my heart.
I’m very proud of how our programming has grown. We have included new families in our no-cost food box program and are now working with Boys & Girls Clubs and Denver Public Library.”
Opening the Gates
By Michelle Rodriguez, Associate in the Food Access and Development Department
“My Seed2Seed experience at The GrowHaus in 2018 was life-changing and opened the gates for me to be a more confident person.
Beyond learning to eat healthier, I discovered that I like connecting with new people and building relationships. Seed2Seed helped me strengthen my communication and public speaking skills, which I now use daily in my job at The GrowHaus.Seed2Seed inspired me to work with my community.
Since the program ended, I have volunteered at community events and worked at the library. I am now an Associate in The GrowHaus’ Development and Food Access Team while completing my business degree."
Our mission is to cultivate community-driven food justice through education and food access.
Everyone deserves a healthy meal. Yet, in many communities there are extensive barriers to fresh food access. The GrowHaus primarily serves the Globeville and Elyria Swansea (GES) neighborhoods as well as other neighborhoods experiencing food insecurity through partnerships with Denver Public Library and Boys and Girls Clubs.
Since 2009, The GrowHaus has partnered with community members to offer fresh food access and ongoing health and wellness programming to ensure our community has the tools and resources to live nourished lives. We run various programs for kids, adults, and families to learn about growing and cooking food, as well as overall wellness.
We strive to be a community-driven organization, meaning that our goal is to have all programs led and implemented by members of our community or others from similar neighborhoods. We are successful when the youth, families, and communities we work with are empowered to feed, nourish and strengthen themselves and each other.
