Organization Mission: The mission of Sweetgrass Garden 501(c)3 is to provide food for the poor and the hungry. In our four years of operation we have provided hundreds of pounds of produce to local food pantries and outreach services. The majority of our donations of fresh produce have gone to the Lowcountry Food Bank to serve children in Title 1 schools hot meals during summer school and afternoon programs. We have provided thousands of pounds of produce to this end. Now we would like to expand our efforts to more directly serve the needs of the hungry on Johns Island and Wadmalaw Island.
