Fighting fresh food insecurity at the University of Illinois.

Grow2Give was created as a way to create green space and bring accessible, no-cost produce to the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus and surrounding community.

Our Story

Why do we do it?
It's simple: to give back to the campus community. The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is home to us. Our garden beds have two purposes - creating more green space on campus, and growing fresh, accessible, and free produce for Illinois students and community members who need it here in Champaign-Urbana.
We'd love to hear from you!
