Urban Seed Foundation is committed to ending food deserts and creating a sustainable model with at-risk communities.
Urban Seed Foundation is commited to providing access to fresh local produce and nutrition education to local at-risk communities. Our focus is on serving and educating our most critical community sectors including pre-natal single moms, pre-k-12th grade students living in food desert areas, homeless teens and homeless veterans.
We collaborate with like-minded community partners to fund local food access and nurtition education programs with an emphasis on practical food decision making skills, food preparation skills, and food growing skills. Our programs also include funding student run farmer's markets, STEAM curriculum in public and charter schools, and hands-on learning in other community hubs where at-risk citizens congregate.
Your generosity empowers us to look beyond the challenges of food insecurity and inspires our full effort into creating healthy solutions for the many in need Nevadans we serve together. We are deeply humbled and privileged to be a source of food access and nutrition education in Las Vegas -- the community that is in the center of our mission.
Our current and future success of providing our at-risk community members with access to healthy locally grown produce is only possible by the continued generosity of our donors. In the coming year, Urban Seed Foundation plans to impact an additional 5000 K-12 students, and 1500 US Veterans and homeless youth. We will also provide cooking lessons and kitchen equipment for over 100 single mothers this year!
We will keep you updated on the exciting progress. Every dollar counts. Please donate generously!

Urban Seed Foundation is working to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food and information to make healthy decisions. We support community sustainability by advocating for consistent access to locally grown produce. In partnership with like-minded local organizations we create solutions which include improving food environments and teaching nutrition education in schools; working with local politicians to advocate for legislative action to advance urban agriculture; we provide grants to schools and organizations that install gardens in at-risk schools; we support fundraising efforts for student run farmer's markets and culinary demonstrations in neighborhoods that lack access to affordable produce.
Urban Seed Foundation is in service to our community members from the pre-natal stage through high school, and beyond. Our systematic and scalable approach to ending food deserts involves causing a critical change in the way people think about fresh food. We will create a sustainable lively food culture with at-risk neighborhoods in Las Vegas - and in doing so we will create the first model for any urban community to actually transform their food deserts into thriving food accessible communities.

Urban Seed Foundation’s launch is at an auspicious time in the farming industry. Our emergence into the Las Vegas scene is well coordinated with highly technological advancements in smart-farming. We are fortunate to have a committed long term partnership with smart-farmer Urban Seed Inc. (www.UrbanSeedInc.com), Las Vegas’ revolutionary provider of locally sourced produce. For the first time in history, an abundant volume of nutrient dense produce will be grown right in the heart of the city.
Innovation + locally produced food + committed action + community collaboration + legislative action + farmers markets + education = true sustainability.
