More About Farming Hope

Farming Hope is the soup kitchen turned on its head – we’re hiring the people who usually stand in line, to produce food and feed others.

We create jobs for homeless people in gardening and use that food in cooking workshops and meals. Growing and serving food lets our folks feel valued and empowered to share their gifts.

We currently partner with churches and homeless service providers in Palo Alto, San Francisco and Saratoga as we grow to plant more gardens, meals and opportunity around the San Francisco Bay Area.

Our work is inspired by Farming Hope programs in El Salvador, Wisconsin, Chicago and now the sunny Bay Area.
