How it works: 

  • Coffee Shops collect their used coffee grounds (used paper coffee filters, too!). And reduce their trash. 
  • Youth Groups pick up and deliver coffee grounds to Community Gardens. Youths learn important life lessons: community, value, making a difference. 
  • Community Gardens use coffee grounds in gardens and compost. The garden members grow vegetables. They deliver their extra vegetables (approx. 350lbs/yr) to Feed the Hungry.
  • Feed the Hungry shares the veggies with those in need. 
  • Families in need receive fresh veggies and improve their health. 


More about the project: 

Hi-5 costs would be: buying buckets, paint to stencil our Hi-5 logo onto, possibly buying t-shirts with logo

Start up time would be: 1-calling coffee shops to donate grounds, 2-finding youth groups interested in participating, 3-talking to Chief gardners at community garden, 4-talk to Food for Hungry or similar organizations to see if they already receive extra veggies from the gardens, 5-keep those in need aware of Free-Farm-Fresh food!
