Join us in downtown South Bend to celebrate Cultivate’s 5th anniversary at our annual Taste of Hope fundraiser! Enjoy food from local chefs, live music, and learn more about Cultivate’s impact as you partner with us to fight hunger and reduce food waste.

During the 2022-23 school year, it is our hope to provide weekend meals for 1,200 food-insecure students in St. Joseph, Elkhart, and Marshall counties with your help! Students who are on free and reduced lunch may go 68 hours without food over the weekend. Our backpack program fills that gap and the meals these students receive give them the nutrition they need to show up to school on Monday ready to learn and grow.
