Healthy Neighborhoods Campaign

The Healthy Time Check initiative uses the assets of the built environment, local food, and community engagement to support the movement of the Time Check neighborhood towards a healthier future with increased opportunity for its residents. The next phase of this initiative includes developing a new corner grocery store, building new housing, and acquiring and fully rehabbing units of existing housing. We are launching the Healthy Neighborhoods campaign to help fund these projects that will help revitalize the Time Check neighborhood. To learn more, visit our Healthy Neighborhoods page.

Groundswell Cafe

Community Served Here

The mission of the Groundswell Café is to provide a place where everyone has access to fresh, healthy food, regardless of their ability to pay. Our simple healthy menu features delicious soups, salads, sandwiches, and omelets with as much of the food as possible supplied by what we grow less than a mile away on our Cultivate Hope Urban Farm and in our on-site hydroponic garden. The rest of the food is sourced from local and organic suppliers. In addition to healthy local food, we also serve a selection of fair trade coffee and teas. Click here to learn more
