Give a Teen a Job This Summer...


In just 11 short weeks, The Food Project's farms will be teeming with activity as we begin our twenty-second Summer Youth Program. For six and a half weeks, over 120 youth from around Greater Boston and the North Shore will grow healthy food, meet a diverse group of teens, serve food at soup kitchens and food pantries, and experience workshops on topics from money management to sustainable agriculture. 

In order to make this program run successfully, we need to raise $50,000 to support youth stipends. This program is more than just a first job for our youth; in fact, it has been called "the best first job EVER." Thus, we are excited to announce the launch of the "Best First Job EVER Challenge," a double-your-dollar fundraising campain.

Thanks to $25,000 in matching funds contributed by a generous group of donors and trustees, every dollar raised through this campaign will blossom into two. Every gift makes a difference, and we hope that you will consider making a donation to support our youth this summer.
