Real Food Rising

 

Real Food Rising (RFR) is a community farming program with a youth development core. We use sustainable agriculture to transform the lives of young people and to increase access to healthy food in Salt Lake. We have modeled RFR after the successful national youth development programs: The Food Project in Boston and Urban Roots in Austin. RFR will incorporate innovative and traditional growing techniques with a diversity of vegetables and fruits. The food we grow will feed all sectors of the community, with some being donated to emergency food pantries, some being sold at farmers markets, and some being sold to restaurants.
