HARVEST KITCHEN

The Harvest Kitchen project is Farm Fresh Rhode Island’s food-industry training program for youth ages 16-19 from DCYF’s Juvenile Corrections Services. Our trainees work to create a line of high-quality preserved foods using ingredients sourced from local farms and sell those goods at farmers markets-while building a stable foundation to maintain employment beyond their time in the program.

Harvest Kitchen is part of Farm Fresh RI’s initiative to increase the variety of value-added local farm products available, and part of our mission to create a community based food system. Harvest Kitchen focuses on offering opportunities for youth to understand how their activities connect to the food system, and the local food movement at large, while gaining the necessary skills and experience to pursue their personal and professional goals.

About Farm Fresh RI

Location:

10 Sims Ave, Unit 103, Providence, RI 02909, US

Mission Statement

MISSION We envision a Northeast abundant with diverse family farms and fertile soils, with locally and honestly produced foods and flavors at the heart of every table. Originally inspired over a decade ago by a Brown University student project, we were founded in 2004, incorporated in 2006, and received 501(c)3 nonprofit status in 2007. Today our mission is much as it was from the start -- to grow a local food system that values the environment, health, and quality of life of the farmers and eaters in our region.

Description

Increasing Community Access to Local Foods

Our Community Access programs increase the availability and affordability of locally sourced foods and share knowledge of how these fresh ingredients fit into a healthy lifestyle. These programs include Farmers Markets, Farm to School and Community Education, Bonus Bucks, and Harvest Kitchen's culinary job training program.

Building Strong Local Food System Enterprises

Our Food System Enterprise services create transparent systems and market-based opportunities for farmers and producers, as well as increase farm viability and financial sustainability for our organization. These programs include Market Mobile and Harvest Kitchen’s food production and processing.
