With our successful GROW! Capital Campaign behind us, 404 Broad Street is now a bustling Healthy Food Hub

The campaign

Our goals were to direct significant community investment into:

  • Helping people grow more healthy FOOD for their families by building four new gardens and farms, and an endowment to maintain all SCLT properties.
  • Creating a much-needed food processing facility so that more small-scale FARMS in our network can prepare and distribute their produce to farmers markets, retailers and restaurants.
  • Rebuilding our headquarters to meet the needs of the PEOPLE we serve – especially young people in our programs.
  • Reclaiming PLACES in the Trinity Square neighborhood that have been blighted and vacant for years.

The building

404 Broad Street is a 12,000 sq. ft., two-story building a few blocks from our old office, overlooking SCLT’s Youth Enterprise Farm. It features a USDA-compliant Farm-to-Market Center and commercial kitchen on the first floor, along with three retail spaces opening this summer that will bring significantly more healthy produce and good jobs to Providence’s South Side.

Our second floor offices provide ample room for our team, including a youth entrepreneurship center. There, SCLT Youth Staff will develop workforce skills and food system awareness, and lead workshops for peers and South Side residents.


Our $5.8 million capital campaign comprised $5.2 million to be spent on the building and $600,000 held in reserve to expand and maintain our large farm and community garden network. To read about one of the innovative investment partnerships that helped us reach our goal, click here.
