Helping the Homeless Through Farm-to-Table Training
There’s a San Francisco garden growing more than just produce. In a city plagued by homelessness, the Farming Hope Initiative offers urban farming and cooking training to those without a place to live. The program aims to give participants skills that can lead to full-time employment, and it hosts weekly dinners that bring together people experiencing homelessness and the wider community. These shared meals are an invitation to dialogue, empathy and some delicious-looking tacos.
