Company Description

Farming Hope is a nonprofit farm-to-table culinary job training program that fosters community leaders in the food system. We offer transitional employment to people in our community who are facing barriers to employment, primarily those who experienced homelessness or incarceration. Apprentices gain a variety of skills through our garden training program in the Western Addition, our meal distribution hub (Refettorio) in Civic Center, and at Manny's restaurant in the Mission. Manny's is home to Farming Hope's social enterprise restaurant space and is a space that encourages and engages the community both civically and politically through a plethora of events. This includes civic and arts related programming put on by the Manny's team, as well as offering the space to local nonprofits, activists and community leaders.
