Farm Fresh Choice is the Ecology Center’s food justice program that engages low-income East Bay residents in reclaiming their optimal health through youth empowerment, nutrition education, and weekly produce stands. We make fresh, organic, regionally grown, and culturally appropriate foods convenient and affordable. Adult mentors and teen leaders facilitate peer-education workshops that raise critical health awareness. We’re Bringing Healthy Back!

We hire youth from the communities we serve to staff our produce stands. Our youth gain valuable job, leadership, and advocacy skills, as well as knowledge about food, farming, and nutrition.

If you are a youth interested in volunteering for Farm Fresh Choice and would like to learn more, contact David McClellan, Farm Fresh Choice Coordinator at (510) 848-1704. We hire through City of Berkeley Youthworks as well as Berkeley Youth Alternatives’ Steps to Success.
