Waves of Prayer is a 501(c)3 serving predominantly African-American and Hispanic farm workers in south Phillips County, most of whom live below the poverty level.  They have 1/2 acre of greens and three cactus gardens totaling 1/8 acre, but plan to expand to include sweet potatoes, okra, purple-hulled peas, and tomatoes.  The crops are free for the picking as their way of introducing healthy foods to the community.  In addition to donating the produce, they plan to begin selling some and become a major Sweet Potato Pie sales outlet. Cactus will also be harvested for sale as they increase education on edible cactus.  Waves of Prayer's primary educational target populations are the 200 young people in the Summer Feeding Program in Lake View and Elaine and the 200 families participating in Free Food Distribution, which receives food from the Delta Food Bank and Arkansas Food Bank.
