Grow It Know It supports this fundraising collaboration among students and staff of the four Clarke County School District middle schools. Students learn the value of service to others while our guests enjoy the value of a community focused, locally grown meal. With produce grown at the schools and at UGArden and with a big assist from Community Chef and Culinary Arts Instructor Manny Stone and his high school students, Meals in the Middle has raised funds funds for community, state, and international organizations including:

Athens Area Homeless Shelter

Interfaith Hospitality Network of Athens

U-Lead Athens

Experience UGA

UPENDO: One Kid at a Time

Athens-Clarke County 4-H

If you or your organization is interested in being beneficiary of one our meals, please contact Wick Prichard at
