Farming Hope is a non-profit community organization providing transitional employment and training in the culinary industry to unhoused and low-income people in our community.

In 2019, we accepted 16 apprentices into our program, and this year we are on track to graduate 20 apprentices from Farming Hope.

Our vision is to transform lives and rebuild communities through a just food system. Our mission is to empower and employ individuals out of poverty through dignified jobs in gardening and cooking.

We were born out of the Stanford FEED Design School Incubator in June 2016 and have been working to build radically inclusive communities in the San Francisco Bay Area since.

Farming Hope is a culinary program and social movement promoting self-sufficiency by creating equitable opportunities in local food businesses.

We use ancestral wisdom to transform local produce into nourishing, vegetable focused cuisine.

We create spaces for people like you to come together across boundaries and share your stories, so everyone can have a place to be seen and heard.
