Mission Statement

Our mission is to cultivate community-driven food justice through education and food access

Organization History

Everyone deserves a healthy meal. Yet, in many communities, the fresh foods necessary for a healthy diet simply aren't available. The GrowHaus primarily serves one such community in North Denver, the Globeville and Elyria Swansea (GES) neighborhoods.

Since 2009, the GrowHaus has offered food distribution and education programs for our community to improve healthy food access. We run various programs for kids and adults to learn about growing and cooking food, as well as provide the resources and food that families need to live a healthy lifestyle.

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.

Please read more in depth descriptions of each of our programs and our response to COVID-19 on our website or the Programs section on this page.


"This is the best thing happening in our neighborhood. There are so many kids getting into trouble, they need something like this - something they can do, that is so positive for the neighborhood." (Gerard Marquez, lifetime resident of Elyria-Swansea)

"I felt a lot more comfortable than I have ever felt in a long time, I feel like I can talk and share what I think and not worrying about what negative things people might say I felt like I have opened up a lot more." (Student from Seed2Seed, our teen leadership program)

"I am cooking healthier, taking advantage of the vegetables from The GrowHaus, saving money, and I don't have to leave my home." (Community member receiving food during COVID-19)

"I have diabetes and I love the healthy food. My next door neighbor loves it as well, she has 2 kids and they love to bake, so that's been nice to see." (Community member receiving food during COVID-19)
