Southside Community Health Services (SCHS) and Urban Ventures (UV) are literally harvesting hope.

Since 2016, the two nonprofits have run Produce Share Program, a partnership to grow fresh produce for SCHS patients as well as provide health education and help improve life for everyday folk living in South Minneapolis.
