Round up to support the Kingston YMCA Farm Project

text, whiteboard

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.

Last year, the diner and our guests raised $10,000 to support this worthy initiative, and we were amazed by everyone's giving spirit. The funds we raised went towards sponsoring a 10-week cooking class for teens, with extra money to supply their garden with tools, seeds, and more. 

This year, we're once again embarking on a campaign to help the Farm Project expand its programming and infrastructure, including building a new outdoor kitchen, where chef-led teens make free meals for the community.

We as a company look for 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
