This year we are adding 300 families to our Nourish Food Program in the 48214 zip code. Working with our partners Jefferson Ave. Presbyterian Church, MACC Development, and JJ’s House, we are offering families in the 48214 the opportunity to receive a box of food weekly through our partnership with Trader Joe’s. You can be a part of ending hunger for Detroit families by donating today. We need your partnership to serve 300 more families this year!
Nourish food relief program
We need a transit van! Our Nourish Food Relief Program has grown substantially over the last 10 months and we need to purchase a transit van in order to continue to expanding our program to include more families. We have a wait list of families who want to join our food program. Become a #foodwarrior by donating today so we can get our transit van on the road picking up food for our families!

Creating sustainable food communities
The current research globally for alleviating hunger shows that communities that create food abundance utilize many tactics including food relief as well as sustainable growing practices in order to alleviate hunger. Sustainable growing practices, including indoor and in ground growing have proven to be very effective in solving food insecurity in emerging communities. Eden Gives is working with community leaders, nonprofit leaders and local citizens in the Islandview and Mack Ave. corridor to create food secure communities utilizing acceptable growing practices that work for the community.
Development of abundance farms
Through our partnership with Eden Urban Farms we are developing a small farming business model utilizing indoor hydroponic growing technologies. We are working with Eden Urban Farms partners to create a small farming business model through which we can provide people in the community the opportunity to own a business that produces food.
Eden Gives is partnering with Wayne State University’s BioTech Center for research with patients with hypertension. We will provide boxes of food weekly to hypertensive patients that are referred to the BioTech Center from the Detroit Medical Center’s ER. As the patients use our food which is largely plant based data will be collected by the BioTech center as they monitor the effect of nutrition on hypertension.
