One Grub Community to host ‘Planty for the People’ nonprofit fundraiser, campaign launch, open house

One Grub Community will present ‘Planty for the People: Nonprofit Fundraiser, Campaign Launch and Open House’ at this Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Planty for the People organizers share that their 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization, collectively creates a “commonplace that fosters food access, equality and community through our pay it forward diner, gardens, educational programming, as well as local and plant-based foods promotion.”

The all-day event will include extended business service hours, craft stations, raffle drawings, and live mural painting by artist Diane Vera, a local silent auction and garden sponsorship tours.

Organizers say they will have Brunch Service from 10 am-5pm. Main events are from 3-5pm, where a ribbon cutting ceremony to reveal our local foods grocery space in partnership with La Semilla Food Center,  a “meet our farmer” panel discussion featuring local farmers, and a surprise announcement as well.

One Grub Community space is located inside the auditorium of First Christian Church (901 Arizona Avenue) nestled in a low-income neighborhood/food
desert, on the outskirts of downtown El Paso. Our 2700 sq.ft. community space also comes with a community garden currently housing over 40 garden beds.

“Our programs are in place to provide a bridge to food access and education,” One Grub officials share. “We do that by offering delicious,
healthy meals to our volunteers, regardless of their means; we provide free garden education to empower the community to grow their own food.”

In addition to the programs, One Grub has sponsorships available for hands on, plant-based cooking classes to increase the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Programs will also provide an on-site grocery/market space to promote our local food economy while providing access to fresh, locally sourced produce and other healthy foods that can be purchased with SNAP food benefits.

We are open Wednesday – Friday from 8am-7pm and Saturdays from 10 a.m. -2 p.m. For more information, visit their Facebook page,  Instagram, or website.
