About Farming Hope and Refettorio San Francisco
Farming Hope is a food justice nonprofit with the vision to build inclusive communities where everyone belongs. We offer a 12-week, paid training in our kitchen for folks facing major barriers to employment, most often homelessness or former incarceration. Alongside our kitchen team, these Apprentices transform imperfect produce into meals for food insecure community members, feeding it forward in a beautiful, dignified way.
In 2023, Farming Hope has trained 35 Apprentices, cooked over 50,000 meals, given away over 160,000 pounds of groceries, and rescued over 22,000 of imperfect produce. Join us in our effort to empower our community and transform our food system.
We work with many partners to achieve our work. Special thank you to our Refettorio partner, Food for Soul! Food for Soul is a project of Lara Gilmore and Massimo Bottura. Learn more: https://www.foodforsoul.it/
