Grow Local facilitates greater integration and cooperation among its coalition members and promotes ethical and responsible efforts to sustainably address issues related to Nutrition and Health using education and technology. Grow Local also sets the norms, standards and conventions to facilitate cooperation across organizations, industries, and populations.

As a virtual coalition manager, Grow Local operates on a non-partisan, multilateral platform to keep members focused on their shared interests, instead of only their institutional self-interests, smoothing out decision-making and ensuring the coalition is adhering to goals and plans. Grow Local recognizes groups do have institutional interests, and helps partners, as is appropriate, achieve their own interests – as long as those interests do not conflict or compete with the mission of the coalition.
