Growing Power is a great idea and Will Allen is rightly credited with a great idea about food when little was happening in urban areas about local produce. But, as the organization has grown exponentially, management has not kept pace. Therefore quality and service suffers a great deal. From the first stand to their MLK Street restaurant, products and services suffer. I so wish they were better.
