A household is food insecure if there is not access, at all times,
to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members.
Hunger and food insecurity are closely related, but distinct, concepts.
Hunger refers to a personal, physical sensation of discomfort.
Food insecurity refers to a lack of available financial resources for food at the level of the household.

Feeding Our Community,
One Pound at a Time
Thanks, with your help we produced over 700 pounds of produce and served 1,200 individuals in 2018!
Here's to a great 2019 garden season!
Thanks to everyone who has supported Harvest for Hope with your time, donations, and friendship. You are truly helping us carry out our mission and making a difference in Dayton. Your support will carry us to new adventures planned for 2019!
There's so much more to do. Join us as we finish work on an accessible garden, with plant beds at varying heights. We have plans for a new children's garden, which will feature a sensory garden for individuals needing sensory stimulation.
Flower lovers, there's something for you as well. We hope to grow beautiful flowers to bring pollinators to the garden and later, blooms for your homes.
We hope you will tell your neighbors about the garden and invite them to join you as we harvest healthy produce for our community.
