We’re all hungry to give back and belong.

Farming Hope is a garden-to-table job training nonprofit. We offer paid, empowering transitional employment in our garden and kitchen with formerly incarcerated or unhoused neighbors.

In 2020 alone, we fed 53,367 San Franciscans experiencing food insecurity and hired 13 new job trainees. This year we launched Refettorio San Francisco with partner Food For Soul. Donate today to support our mission to empower and feed neighbors in need.

Our Food at Manny's

Farming Hope at Manny’s is our social enterprise restaurant. Manny's began as a Mission-district venue that combines a restaurant, political bookshop, and event space. Now open Tue-Sun 11am-7pm. 3092 16th Street, San Francisco, CA.

We Need Your Help!

We need to raise funds to hire 16 Apprentices in 2021. Pay it forward by helping us toward our goal. Your donations give us the chance to run our training program for the community.

“This is therapy, the work. It gives me peace, and the space to think about my schedule... I said to myself I have a body and I'm going to use it."

— Phillip, a Farming Hope graduate on the therapeutic benefits of gardening and community involvement while watering lettuce he planted.
