Founded in 2007, FoodWhat?! is a youth empowerment and food justice organization. At FoodWhat?!, youth engage in relationships with land, food, and each other in ways that are grounded in love and rooted in justice. The nonprofit provides meaningful space where youth define and cultivate their empowerment, liberation, and well-being. Youth from Watsonville to Santa Cruz join the FoodWhat?! Crew through their Spring Internship, Summer Job Training and Fall Project Management programs. As a FoodWhat?! Crew, they grow, cook, eat, and distribute fresh, healthy food while also addressing local food justice issues. FoodWhat?! youth use organic farming, nourishing food, and loving community as vehicles to grow on their own terms and in lasting ways.
