Education is the backbone of FoodChain, and we need you to be a part of our mission! Our education volunteer opportunities include tabling at elementary school science nights and working with Fayette County’s Farm to School Coalition. This are also opportunities to be trained as a tour guide at FoodChain to offer public tours of our aquaponics farm on Saturdays. Volunteers will answer questions about FoodChain and our mission and programs, and engage in conversations about food access and sustainability. Come join our team!

Our mission is to connect communities with their food through education and demonstration of local, sustainable food systems.
FoodChain reconnects people with their food by providing education and demonstration of innovative, sustainable food production. We operate an indoor aquaponics system in an old bread factory in downtown Lexington, KY, in which we harvest tilapia and grow edible leafy greens in the same closed-loop system. We have also expanded our operations to include a kitchen and processing facility that provides cooking classes and job training for local community members.
We'll work with your schedule.
