The Harvest Kitchen Project

The Harvest Kitchen Project is an extension of Farm Fresh Rhode Island, a not-for-profit local food system, that provides a 15-week culinary and job-readiness training curriculum for youth within the Division of Juvenile Corrections.  Participants are trained in preparation of high-quality preserved foods using ingredients grown by local farmers.  Final products are sold at local stores, farmers markets, and to wholesale customers, targeting bulk quantities for local schools, hospitals, and cafeterias.  The Kitchen has completed five training sessions with over 25 trainees successfully completing the program, graduates continue on to work at local restaurants or commercial kitchens, return to the program to be teacher’s assistants, work in sales, or enroll in GED programs.
