Seeds in the Middle is grateful to anyone, anywhere who wants to help. We say that any donation, even a minute or a penny, is more than we had yesterday.

It can be time, services, goods, or just cash. Whatever it is, we are certain you can change the trajectory of a child’s life.

We call upon the volunteerism and generosity of the U.S. "village" - crossing cultural, socioeconomic, racial, religious divides to build bridges of trust and opportunity and support.

CHEFS can guide our school chefs and host joyous dinner parties to show healthy cooking.
