Youth Farm uses food as a catalyst for social change, community engagement and leadership development - food is their tool to change the world. Youth Farm cultivates leadership for more than 700 youth with year-round programming focused on planting, growing, preparing and distributing the food they grow. Youth Farm’s mission is simple: they farm to grow.
Youth Farm brings quality food to urban neighborhoods and explores culinary traditions from around the world. Youth cook and distribute a combined 5,000-10,000 pounds of fresh, local produce grown on 17 urban farm plots totaling almost three acres. Youth Farm is building a youth-led food movement by increasing food production and leaders’ capacity for growing, cooking, eating and sharing healthy food in their own urban communities.
