City of Charlotte Solid Waste Services
The City of Charlotte Solid Waste Services has a wonderful invested relationship with Bruns Academy, a Title 1 school a mere few miles away from their office. By eating more live, fresh food, this department encourages citizens to reduce their impact on the environment and diminish their byproduct waste. Solid Waste Services believes in the mission of Pop Up Produce and created a partnership and program for Bruns Academy. By leveraging this relationship and contributing to Pop Up Produce's cause, The City not only donated enough kits for all 50 students in Bruns' 3rd grade class to learn how to grow their own food, but also purchased several kits for their employees to enjoy as well.
LandDesign, a collaborative group of landscape architects, civil engineers, planners and urban designers, believes in creating places that matter. Community, environment, education, corporate social responsibility, and more -- LandDesign gravitated towards Pop Up Produce's mission and took initiative to create places that matter. LandDesign purchased several Fresh Start Kits to plant on their downtown Charlotte, NC office balcony. Additionally, their employees fundraised money, providing enough supplies for a donated location to receive a garden. By beautifying their company garden planters, LandDesign was able to gift a garden to a local Title 1 school situated in a nearby food desert.
Sustain Charlotte Community Corps (SCCC) is a diverse group of volunteers who support sustainability in Charlotte through social, educational and fundraising activities and events. Working with Pop Up Produce, SCCC was able to leverage their events, such as a monthly mixer and Biketoberfest, to help the challenged neighborhoods they work with; when Sustain Charlotte members purchase and donate funding through these events, Pop Up Produce then provides these kits and supplies, to the designated neighborhoods.
