Fresh, healthy food for all.

The Manna Garden

The Manna Garden was started by The Garden Project of Southwest Colorado in 2004. In 2020, the two organizations merged to address the root causes of poverty, hunger, and hardship in our community. Together we have expanded our community relevance and impact, cooperating with families and individuals of all ages to achieve greater resilience and sufficiency by providing nourishing meals, support services, garden programs, food security education and job skills training. 

Food harvested from the garden feeds Manna’s clients and supplies instructional produce for Manna’s Culinary Program. 7,777 pounds of produce were harvested in 2021, contributing to our daily meals and food boxes.
