A Seattle non-profit

We inspire and empower youth through growing, cooking, and sharing food.

We engage youth through after-school and in-school programs, spring and summer camps, field trips, and evening cooking classes.

Our curriculum-based, pay-what-you-can programs progress from basic food knowledge to advanced gardening and cooking skills.

We enhance learning opportunities by interweaving food growing and cooking with academic subjects such as math, science, and history — practice baking skills while learning about the science of liquids and solids!

Our youth eat a snack or meal during programming and often to take home a sample of what we cook together, as well as vegetables we grow in the garden.

concluding Summer camp 2021

Wow! We did it!! We pulled off camp this year.

We are so thankful for all the youth, their families, our board, volunteers, staff, and everyone who supported us through camp. We had a magical summer. We planted, harvested, played with chickens, made creative artwork, learned a ton, and finally cooked delicious meals.
