We are a culinary job training program for youth ages 16–19 involved with the RI Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF). Trainees work to create our full line of value-added products — from pickles to applesauce — using ingredients sourced from local farms, and get hands-on retail experience selling their goods at farmers markets and in our café.
Our training program is supported in part by proceeds from our line of youth-made products and by our Local Foods Café in downtown Pawtucket, open Monday through Friday 10am to 3pm at 2 Bayley Street, on the corner of Main Street. Enter our parking lot from Main Street. Thank you for supporting us with your purchase!
