Action

Development of a vacant, blighted lot where the T.O.P. team worked with the city planning department and other noteworthy city officials / community partners to convert the lot into an oasis in the middle of a food desert. Upon completion, the lot now serves as a semi solar-powered food rescue, food production, composting, and financial literacy center that services over 150 individuals and employs over 5 local students on a weekly basis. And those numbers are growing weekly.
