Food Works Farm empowers 30 urban teens to build leadership and employment skills through operating a 2 acre organic market farm business on Sauvie Island.  These youth farmers are improving their local food system by promoting community health through Veggies on the Street community cooking & nutrition demonstrations and distributing over 3,000lbs of organic produce directly to their community. Support the Food Works youth in 2013 by participating in a youth-led volunteer work day or by becoming a volunteer intern.
