As an urgent response to Covid-19, growingSOUL pivoted our programming to focus on the more immediate needs of our community. "Last Mile Food Box Delivery" ensured that healthy 32-lb fresh food boxes reach those in suffering from the pandemic. Between July 2020 and May 2021, growingSOUL fed over 3 million people in DC, Maryland, New York, Virginia, and West Virginia. In appreciation for including all 5 boroughs in our efforts and feeding over 1.5 million New Yorkers, we are proud to announce that growingSOUL received the City of NY Mayoral Service Recognition Award 2020.
