Come taste the freshest food grown by Cleveland's youth!
We pair local chefs with youth gardens for a tasting competition and fresh food celebration.
This event is made possible by the Refresh Collective monthly support team, Tri-C, The Food Trust, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress Climate Resilience Initiative as well as all of the chefs who volunteer there time. Thank you!
Calling all foodies!
Chefs are paired with youth gardens to compete for the best taste, presentation and educational impact.
Cast your VOTES to decide who has the freshest taste, presentation, and educational impact!
We motivate and empower youth to grow fresh food in their neighborhood or school garden and challenge them to become creative, healthy leaders.
Fresh Food Hip-hop?
Here's the Mary Bethune garden team's CD, "Turn Up."
Here's the our FRESHTOBERFEST 2015 Compilation CD recorded by Cleveland youth that educate and motivate us to eat FRESH!
How This Works
We found local chefs who are passionate about empowering youth to grow fresh and eat fresh. We paired them up with youth gardens to help students prepare the food grown in their own community or school garden. At a few of these gardens, Dee Jay Doc and the Fresh Camp helped students create songs about their gardening experience that would motivate others to eat FRESH, live FRESH and be FRESH!
