The Pollination Project has always been a source of personal validation, that our efforts really do matter to people outside our immediate community. When we received this grant, we were close to ending the program because the cost of keeping up the meals was too great for us, and all our efforts were concentrated on day to day surviving. Receiving the help from The Pollination Project meant allowing us to breathe and focus on ways to making it sustainable for upcoming years.

To say we are grateful is an understatement. Your grants, your support, your belief in us has made the different in the lives of so many people. 11,239 people received a vegan meal in large part because of you. And a community that takes care of each other, a space that was not there before but that now allows people to e human, to talk, to laugh, to breathe is now there. It’s hard to put a price on that, but that is the difference. This is how we change the world. Thank you for your part in that.
