Exploring Santa Cruz from KSQD

FoodWhat Founder/Director Doron Comerchero describes a unique farm-based program for Santa Cruz County youth:

“The playing field for youth in Santa Cruz County is not level.  FoodWhat  serves low-income and struggling teenage youth across Santa Cruz County who suffer disproportionately from common problems associated with poverty: diminished school success, severely limited employment options, personal or family trauma, low self-esteem and compromised health.  Through healthy food, meaningful work, and a deeply connective and supportive group of people surrounding them, the youth in FoodWhat carve out a different path for themselves.”
