SEA’s goal is to provide for the basic needs (food, housing, utilities and medical care) of people in crisis, helping them achieve self-sufficiency. Local gardeners have brought produce to SEA for many years to provide directly to clients. Cawaco provided grant funds to enable SEA to establish their own garden. In the past, produce went quickly and SEA wanted to be able to have enough to provide to all of clients. SEA also holds nutrition classes and educational classes of all kinds for new and single mothers. Their hope is to show clients how to use fresh produce to provide healthy meals for their families.
