St. Paul’s Educational Ventures is partnering with Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas, , donors, and Fresh Farm HQ on a project to provide fresh, locally-grown produce to the underserved in the Kansas City area.
This effort is attempting to solve two problems, the lack of fresh, nutritious food for the poor and the difficult challenge faced by those who wish to earn a living by small farming operations.
The strategy is to find donors who will employ the newly-established food hub, Fresh Farm HQ ( to move produce from the farms to Catholic Charities’ Hope Distribution Center which distributes food to food pantries in nine  Northeast Kansas counties.
