Real Food Rising

 Real Food Rising  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.

It’s true, Real Food Rising is moving…organizations. Utahns Against Hunger and The Boards of Trustees of Salt Lake Community Action Program (Salt Lake CAP) are very pleased to announce that beginning November 1st, Salt Lake CAP will become the new administrator of Real Food Rising.  Check out the press release here.

Don’t worry, we’re not physically moving anywhere.  We have the same farm at Neighborhood House (1050 W. 500 S.) and will stay at the same office location at Salt Lake CAP (764 S. 200 W).  Over the past four years, Real Food Rising has loved being a part of Utahns Against Hunger and we are grateful that they were able to provide a home from which Real Food Rising could grow.
