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 66061

The 66061 zip code is a vibrant area with a rich history that dates back to the early 1800s. Known as Olathe, the area was originally settled by pioneers who sought to carve out a new life in the west. With an estimated population of 66,702 in 2023, Olathe today stands as a beacon of opportunity and community spirit.

Olathe’s history is steeped in a commitment to education and growth. Today, it proudly boasts a remarkable 92.8% of residents aged 25 and older holding a high school diploma, while an impressive 45.7% have achieved a Bachelor’s degree or higher.

Olathe’s unemployment rate of 4.5% is a testament to the resilience and determination of its residents. In a diverse community where the foreign-born population percentage exceeds the state average, Olathe thrives as a melting pot of cultures and backgrounds. With a population that includes 72.3% white, 15.4% Hispanic/Latino, and 5.9% Black residents, Olathe is a celebration of multiculturalism. This diversity enriches the tapestry of life in the community, making it a place where different perspectives and backgrounds are cherished.

Olathe’s economic landscape is equally impressive, with an average income of $92,014. The presence of major companies like Honeywell, ALDI, Garmin, and Farmers Insurance Group underscores the area’s commitment to prosperity and innovation.

Amidst these successes, Olathe recognizes that there is still work to be done, particularly in the realm of food security. ATH believes in empowering communities to reach their full potential, and Olathe is no exception.
