Getting CLOSER to RAISE THE ROOF for FOODWHAT YOUTH!

The FoodWhat family has been working for over a month to raise $12,500 to build our first outdoor gathering space/classroom for youth! This will be a space for youth to gather when they come to the Farm, have workshops, share meals together, dig into food justice, learn and grown. This week we were up to 50% of our goal, and kept pounding the pavement to keep momentum going. 

youth in the Spring Internship program... it's clear they need a roof!
 


THEN New Leaf Community Markets stepped it up with an extraordinarily generous $2300 donation to take us to the 75% mark!!! New Leaf has supported FoodWhat efforts like the Strawberry BLAST youth health education event for years, and we’re so grateful they helped us reach this huge milestone in the campaign.

THANK YOU New Leaf!
