The Community Food Leaders are young people (ages 16-21) employed on our team to assist with the implementation of direct education programs, promoting and advocating for improved food access, growing and harvesting food at The People’s Garden, and supporting fresh food resources in their own community. Community Food Leaders work 12-15 hours per week during the school year. They distribute the produce they grow to Field-to-Fork Club participants and sell it at the Shively Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market.
