Indianapolis, IN

Indianapolis, IN has been a member of the Cities of Service coalition since Mayor Greg Ballard signed the Declaration of Service in 2011. Since then, resident volunteers have been committed to achieve the city's goals, with a particular focus on health. Through partnerships with local stakeholders, the city has developed the Grow-N-Indy project, designed to increase Indianapolis residents' access to nutritious food and to encourage light activity.

Using the Cities of Service Let's Grow blueprint, Indianapolis developed Grow-N-Indy, a garden initiative designed to increase Indianapolis residents' access to nutritious food while also encouraging light activity. By participating in the Grow-N-Indy program, resident volunteers receive support to create community gardens, connect with master gardeners, and engage local businesses and organizations. Through these fruit and vegetable gardens, Mayor Ballard is able to address health challenges related to hunger, food insecurity, and poor nutrition found in Indianapolis communities with little access to fresh fruits and vegetables.
