Real Food Rising is about Food Production, Education, Food Access, Job Training and Building Bridges between Communities. Our program grows young leaders while producing food for the Salt Lake Community. Our vision is to do this through growing on a few acres of urban farmland in Salt Lake County with a 30-youth Youth Program and numerous volunteers. Our program teaches not only Real Food Rising youth interns about growing food in sustainable ways, eating healthfully, food insecurity in Utah, and impacting the community through service – but also educates other kids and adults who come to our farm through field trips, tours and volunteer mornings. Currently we grow on a 1.5 acre urban farm adjacent to the Jordan River at Neighborhood House. Our program is both farm-focused as well as community-focused with initiatives that engage community members both on the farm and at their homes
