Brainfood Homegrown

Brainfood Homegrown is a youth-led food venture that's equal parts homemade food and locally sourced talent. At Brainfood Homegrown, Brainfood graduates use their culinary talents and skills to produce top-quality, delicious, healthy snacks, that they then sell at our Brainfood Homegrown stand in Union Market, as well as at a growing number of distribution points throughout the city. Through Homegrown, D.C. youth are building professional skills with paid jobs, as well as connecting with the city’s growing food community. All profits generated by Brainfood Homegrown go back into supporting Brainfood youth programs.
