In a Nutshell

Donations support creation of home gardens and pesticide-free-gardening guidance for farm workers and their families

The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to Toxic Free North Carolina. $1,000 grant provided by Groupon. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide donor's full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Food Insecurity Among Farm Workers

Although farm workers handpick an estimated 85 percent of the fruits and vegetables in the United States, about half struggle to obtain enough food for themselves and their families to eat, according to the National Center for Farmworker Health. In addition, they are at high risk for pesticide exposure, according to the CDC.

The Campaign: Help Farm Workers' Families Grow Home Gardens

If this Grassroots campaign raises $100, then Toxic Free North Carolina can provide seedlings and a home-gardening consultation for one farm worker and his or her family. With the seeds and seedlings, plus pesticide-free-gardening guidance, the family should soon be able to supplement purchased food with fresh produce from their garden. Each additional $100 raised will be used to provide seedlings and a gardening consultation for another family.

To celebrate the launch of Groupon Grassroots, Groupon will provide a $1,000 kickoff grant to this campaign.

Toxic Free North Carolina

Toxic Free North Carolina provides education about pesticide hazards and aims to change the way communities view and use toxic chemicals, with the goal of reducing pesticide pollution. In addition to combating pesticide exposure among the general population, the organization focuses specifically on farm workers and their families, who are at a particularly high risk for pesticide exposure, with programming that aims to reduce their risk and address hunger in that population.
