GROUP Volunteers

The Food Project’s Serve & Grow program offers a positive and energizing service-learning opportunity for groups of all types.

Corporate and community groups alike will benefit from the team-building and hands-on learning that occurs while working on the farm.

Corporate Groups
Participating in Serve & Grow benefits your company in many ways:

  • Increases the impact of your company’s overall philanthropic efforts
  • Visibly affirms your company’s support for your community
  • Fosters trust, collaboration, and respect among your team members
  • Provides a refreshing environment that brings out new skills and creative thinking that employees can apply back at the office

To cover the costs of staffing the volunteer program and distributing the produce that your group will help plant, care for, and harvest, we ask for a contribution of $500. Please be in touch if such a contribution is prohibitive for your group participating in Serve & Grow.

College and Community Groups
During your group’s Serve & Grow session, volunteers will:

  • Gain new skills and learn about sustainable farming and the food system in a hands-on way
  • Build stronger relationships with others in the group
  • Feel accomplishment and pride in working to provide food for their community

To cover the costs of staffing the volunteer program and distributing the produce that your group will help plant, care for, and harvest, we ask for a contribution of $10/person. Please be in touch if such a contribution is prohibitive to your group participating in Serve & Grow.

Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age. Volunteers between ages 14 to 17 must be accompanied by parent or guardian.
