Welcome to Sow Good's Crowdfunding Campaign Scroll down to see the initiatives

Sow Good

Sow Good is a 501c3 nonprofit organization located in Nashville, TN. We develop and support innovative and collaborative initiatives that create, foster, and/or highlight social equity, access, and inclusion. In that spirit, we have developed this crowdfunding initiative to provide seed money to these worthwhile projects. All of the following concepts utilize food to address hunger and health and/or to empower and educate. Please keep scrolling to learn more about these wonderful ideas.

Phila Hach

Phila Hach blazed a trail as a female chef in Tennessee. She hosted the first cooking show in the South (a decade before Julia Child's show), wrote 17 cookbooks, and hosted the entire delegation of the United Nations in Nashville (where she smuggled in 1,700 mint juleps). But even more, she empowered those around her to make their own way. We're working with Phila's grandson Carter to create an awards program for those who are keeping Phila's legacy alive. We believe it's a way to inspire others while honoring Phila. Proceeds will benefit Food for Food, a program that provides support for initiatives that address hunger and food insecurity.

Cooking Up

Cooking Up is a community based food education program that invites individuals & families into the kitchen & around the table. Utilizing hands on cooking, Cooking Up teaches how to shop smart & plan meals to eat better & waste less. Participants will learn basic cooking techniques, easy & healthy recipes, weekly food planning & how to reduce food waste, and each program ends by eating together. Cooking Up meets the community where they are: in their neighborhoods & community centers. Donations will go towards cooking equipment, food needed, printed materials and training of volunteer educators.

Celebrate Nashville

Think Local: Eat Global is a new venture by Celebrate Nashville. This will be an international tasting event that supports immigrant-owned food businesses while raising money for the annual festival in October. The goal is to partner with the Nashville Farmers Market to put on the event and have the funds to pay for equipment, tables, tents, chairs, vendors, etc.

Greenhorn

A two-prong food project that would work with refugees to develop marketable food items related to their backgrounds. Then, sell those items to restaurants, grocery stores, etc. And, use the proceeds to pay for a hospitality training program in which recently arrived refugees would develop their kitchen skills by actually assisting in the production of the food items to be sold. Funds raised would assist in paying for the testing of the refugee recipes that will, hopefully, be sold in a store or restaurant near you.
