Providing Food, Jobs and Therapy to LA’s Homeless

Founded in 2011, GrowGood, Inc., is a Los Angeles-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, creating urban agricultural programs to empower people and transform communities. GrowGood provides fresh produce and opportunities through our 1.5-acre farm in Bell, Calif., just a few miles from downtown Los Angeles. We grow thousands of pounds of vegetables and fruit that become part of more than 6,000 meals served each week at the Salvation Army's Bell Shelter. Working with the shelter staff, we operate a paid job training program for residents and a Life Skills series of classes. Shelter clients also have access to the peace and healing aspects of being in the garden and among our hundreds of native plants.

By donating to GrowGood, you can join us in our mission to help feed shelter clients and provide opportunities to help them resume independent lives.

Since 2011, GrowGood has been working in partnership with The Salvation Army to transform and maintain a 1.5­-acre parcel of land adjacent to The Salvation Army's Bell Homeless Shelter into an urban farm. The Bell Shelter - the largest homeless shelter west of the Mississippi - operates a comprehensive program that offers transitional care for up to 350 homeless men, women, and veterans.

GrowGood's no-till, biodynamic urban farm provides the Shelter’s kitchen with substantial quantities of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables as well as therapeutic and employment opportunities for residents.  In 2016, GrowGood's farm provided over 7,100 lbs. of organic produce to the Shelter's kitchen, which serves over 6,000 meals per week.

Unlocking New Opportunities to Help the Community


Unlocking New Opportunities to Help the Community


In 2016, something unexpected happened, local LA chefs and restaurants heard about our rare biodynamic farm and the quality and taste of our produce and they wanted in. We had set out to grow food for the largest homeless shelter on the West Coast and in the process created a rare biodynamic farm in the heart of LA that would enable LA business to source hyper-local, top quality microgreens, herbs, and flowers.
