june: Spring Internship
Wrap-up!

 The FoodWhat?! Spring Internship has come to a close, and we are excited to share some highlights with you! Here's what the youth had to say:  "My favorite memory at FoodWhat would have to be when we made stone soup, because I feel like that dish itself brings people together and I remember that day that everybody was in the kitchen doing something. Even though Kevin said he hadn't washed his hands and it grossed me out, the soup was still good."     -Melanie, Tuesday Crew, Costanoa High School, Santa Cruz

Youth responses to the question "How would you explain FoodWhat to a friend?"  

"It is a program that helps young people to focus on positive things. The farm, new plants, cooking and enjoying each other's company, and how we are respectful with each other." - Carlos

"I would tell them if you see a program and a team called FoodWhat, join it, because it's a lot of fun! You learn a lot about organic foods, you cook, and get an awesome experience." - Apolinar

 High Five to that! We're excited to continue to work with many of these youth in our Summer Job Training Program which just started this week!
