Events and Pop-ups at Farming Hope

We love hosting events to welcome the community to join us in uplifting each other and being a part of our mission of creating good jobs with good food.

Our Guest Chef Series highlights local Chefs that share our values of inclusivity and equity in the workplace. These special evenings are nonprofit restaurant pop-ups – one-of-a-kind ticketed dinners. Our Chefs design special one-night-only meals, and they’ll explain their inspiration to the audience. Our Apprentices cook alongside the Chefs, learning and growing from the best in the business. Your ticket purchase goes directly towards supporting our dreams of economic empowerment for our Apprentices and their families.

 Farming Hope is different — we pay Apprentices while they learn in our program.
Paying people makes sense, but costs dollars.
