Grains of Hope promotes long-term food sustainability for all.


The modern field of food systems and agriculture is being revolutionized by new technological advances. However, our current food systems are growing increasingly inadequate to nourish the ever-increasing population with healthy, affordable food.

Our mission is to spread interest and knowledge about the burgeoning field of food systems and agriculture and organize communities to promote long-term food sustainability.

We explore where the food we consume comes from and the challenges throughout the supply chain from farm to table. We tackle problems with the current food systems, including food insecurity, food waste, malnutrition, unhealthy diets, food safety, efficiency of distribution channels, and sustainability.



Founded in January, 2022 by a diverse group of high school students from various states across the US, Grains of Hope is a vibrant and welcoming community that campaigns for the humanity and sustainability challenges faced by our food systems.

As a registered 501c3 non-profit organization, we provide volunteer hours and President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) to members and are qualified for tax- exempt donations.
