Supporting the Kingston YMCA Farm Project
This summer, we're very excited to launch a new fundraising campaign. The Kingston YMCA Farm Project teaches people of all ages how to plant, harvest, and cook fresh and healthy food. All the while, it pays teens a competitive wage for their work on the farm -- empowering youth and growing a healthier community.
We as a company have been looking at ways to support our community in a meaningful way. This program brings together the three ideas that align with those goals:
- Support access to fresh food for those who need it
- Teach young people healthy eating habits
- Educate young folks on where their food comes from and inspire them to grow their own
Phoenicia Diner has committed to sponsoring a 6-week cooking class for 8 teens this fall. Our hope is by inviting our patrons to help, we might be able to have an even greater impact on this crucial organization, ensuring that enjoying, cooking, and supporting the production of hyper-local food is something that people of all ages and income levels can appreciate.
