Food Works is a youth employment and empowerment program that engages 14-21 year old young people in all aspects of planning, growing, selling and donating over 4,000 pounds of organic produce each year from their 1-acre organic farm on Sauvie Island. Food Works Crew Members learn business, leadership, organic agriculture and other important work and life skills through working as team to market their food at farmers markets and local grocery stores, and donating a significant portion of the food they grow back to their community. Crew Members also receive school credit for their work and are supported to transition into other employment opportunities and to succeed in their academic goals (five Food Works' graduates, all immigrants from East Africa, have received college scholarships through Janus' Scholarship program).
