Mill City Grows: Cultivating Rich Community Connections Through Food

Thanks to your dedication and generosity, Mill City Grows continues to unite our diverse community through locally grown food. Our Food Access and Education Programs forge meaningful, interpersonal relationships that improve the emotional and physical well-being of Lowell residents of all ages.

Our organization is rooted in the idea that when people gather to grow, cook, and share wholesome food, amazing things can happen. This work is only made possible through your collaboration, inspiration, and enduring support! Please join us as we embark on a new year of cultivating rich community connections through food!
