Urban Produce Push is ATH’s vision to ensure that every corner of Kansas City has access to an abundance of healthy, nourishing fruits and vegetables. Through UPP, ATH is taking action to address communities struggling most with food insecurity. In these areas, there is a significant lack of resources such as quality grocery stores, community gardens, and access to fresh produce. With your help, our goal is to bridge these gaps and create a more balanced food landscape by providing support where it’s needed most urgently.

UPP-Ward Bound: The History of 64118

Nestled within the 64118 zip code lies the community of Gladstone, Missouri, a place where history, resilience, and unity are deeply ingrained in its identity. Gladstone’s history is a tale of settlement and determination. Originally known as Linden, it was settled primarily by migrants from Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia who began to grow hemp and tobacco. 

Today, Gladstone’s residents, primarily white (81%), with a significant Black (10%) and Hispanic (7%) population, contribute to the vibrant tapestry of this community. The blend of cultures and traditions adds to the neighborhood’s unique charm and strength.

With an average income of $49,500, Gladstone is a community with a diverse economic landscape. Here, 46% of residents work full-time, 26% work part-time, and 27% face economic challenges with no earnings.

While Gladstone’s history is illustrious, there are modern-day challenges, including access to fresh and nutritious food. ATH believes in nurturing Gladstone by addressing food security issues in the neighborhood.
