FoodChain


We forge links between community and fresh food with education and demonstration of sustainable food systems. Our Teaching and Processing Kitchen hosts local produce cooking classes and monthly community meals, while also lightly-processing local produce to make it more convenient and affordable. Our Workforce Development program trains community members for jobs with the local food system. Our indoor aquaponics farm teaches visitors how fresh food can be grown in unlikely urban spaces.

We help people re-imagine their relationship with fresh ingredients - from growing them, cooking them, sharing them, eating them, and even getting a job utilizing them! Education is our primary focus, and we help youth and families gain better understanding around fresh ingredients, better life skills, health, and community connections.
We need help with educational outreach, including youth cooking classes, leading tours through our farm, and helping with community outreach. We also need gently-used or new kitchen utensils, equipment, and small appliances to stock our "Help Yourself Shelf," which class participants can access so as to have the means to bring recipes and techniques for fresh food cooking into their own home kitchens.
