Urban Roots uses food and farming to transform the lives of young people and inspire, engage, and nourish the community. The only farm-based youth development and community impact organization in Austin, we have served over 500 youth through paid internships that support their growth as leaders. This past growing season our staff, youth interns, and volunteers harvested over 40,000 pounds of sustainably grown produce on our 3.5 acre farm in east Austin. We dedicated over half of that to increasing food access to underserved communities through our own programs and our hunger relief partners. In 2020, we broke ground on a second farm in South Austin to expand our impact.
