Raise the Roof: HUGE Community Success!

Fantastic news to share:

More than 140 funders and local businesses have donated over $14,600 to 
RAISE THE ROOF FOR FOODWHAT YOUTH! 
THANK YOU!! 






Now, onwards! We are incredibly excited to begin building our first significant outdoor structure for our youth crews. This will be a space for youth to come together at the FoodWhat Farm for workshops, for straight talk, for deeply personal conversations, for leadership development, to dig into food justice, to share a meal together. This space will serve countless youth for many years to come. YOU are part of this success story! 



This was an incredible community effort where together we not only crossed the finish line in a short four weeks but exceeded the goal.

Keep checking the blog as the next big steps unfold: clearing the area, grading, constructing, beautifying, and (before we know it), engaging in this space with youth!

Special thanks to New Leaf Community Markets, Charlie Hong Kong, Companion Bakeshop, Assembly, The Penny, and Orchard Keepers for joining in on this campaign and investing in our local youth!
