Farm-to-Fork Fellowship 

The Farm-to-Fork Fellowship (F2FF) is a program that pays youth to grow the food that goes into their school lunches, bringing kids closer to their food and equipping them with life skills that they can take back to their communities.

Youth in grades 9-12 work 4 hours per week during the months of August-May and 20 hours per week during the months of June and July.

In an innovative partnership with Shelby City Schools, youth from all over the city plant, cultivate and harvest the fresh produce that is then put back into the school system to be included in school lunches. 

This is more than a program about learning to grow something. It gives youth a meaningful, hands-on experience that teaches valuable lessons that can't always be learned from a book.

Farm-to-Fork Fellows are selected through a highly competitive application process, and new fellows are taken on as funding becomes available.
