Mission Statement

"Food, What?!" is a youth empowerment and food justice organization using food, through sustainable agriculture and health, as the vehicle for growing strong, healthy, resilient teens.

Description

We partner with low-income and struggling youth in Santa Cruz County to grow, cook, eat, and distribute sustainably raised food and address food justice issues in our community. Youth join the FoodWhat crew through Spring Internships, Summer Jobs, Fall Project Management positions, and big community events at the FoodWhat farm on the UC Santa Cruz campus. We create a safe space where youth engage in leadership development, personal growth and job training. At FoodWhat, we inspire personal transformation by supporting teens in finding their voices and developing lasting confidence in themselves. FoodWhat is fiscally sponsored by 501c3 nonprofit Life Lab Science Program.
