Mission
The mission of Sol Food Mobile Farm (SFMF) starts with advocating for local foods and renewable energy sources. To address such large topics, SFMF offers both expos and workshops from its retro-fitted school bus classroom. Its program directives can be divided into five major categories- gardening, composting, alternative energies, nutrition and environmental interaction.

Philosophy
SFMF aims to serve communities in their own backyards! By recognizing that every community has a unique set of resources and skills, it hopes to work with groups to further foster environmental stewardship in their local area.

Support
Zomppa serves as SFMF’s fiscal sponsor. As such, all donations made to SFMF through Zomppa, a 501(c)3 is tax-exempt. In addition to an innovative gardening and composting curriculum, SFMF will also pilot Zomppa’s Healthy Eating and Global Exploration curriculum on its 6-month journey across the U.S.! The adventures, travels, and updates will be posted regularly as featured articles on Zomppa.
