The Problem

Our goal is to increase the level of food security in our city of Omaha. Our community partner, Open Door Mission, serves 2,000 meals a day to our city inhabitants. Our goal is to grow more fresh tilapia food fish and provide vegetables to increase the health of our community.

Our Plan

With our 60 community partners working with us we will develop vacant areas of the city for food production plus work in our indoor hydroponic lab to provide food for our food pantry.
