The Good Food Work Experience is a hands-on experience in a fun and relaxed environment.

On the farm, in the warehouse, and in the kitchen, youth aged 18-29 who are out of work and out of school are being trained by The SEED and Everdale to explore different aspects of the food system and gain work experience.
