Reno Food Systems

Reno Food Systems

Reno Food Systems is a Reno-based nonprofit organization working toward ending youth hunger and building resilient food systems in the community, with a mission to cultivate community-based food systems through education, research, and civic engagement. Its flagship location, Park Farm, is a 5-acre vegetable farm where Reno Food Systems employees and volunteers grow nutrient-dense, organic produce.

Every week, Reno Food Systems delivers produce to the Eddy House, a nonprofit organization and youth shelter working to end youth hunger and homelessness in Northern Nevada. Eddy House is the only nonprofit agency in Northern Nevada, Eastern California, Southern Oregon, and Western Utah that serves homeless youth aged 18-24.

Staff and residents at the shelter prepare fresh meals using the donated produce through its Food for Families Program. The $7,500 grant GNCU sponsored helps Reno Food Systems supply the Eddy House with healthy food ingredients, where they served 11,104 meals in 2021 to their clients.
