Sustainable Life Project

Tender Greens began hiring homeless teens to work in their restaurants and saw how food can bring healing and opportunity to young lives. The founders of Tender Greens and Scarborough Farms created a program to provide transitioning foster youth access to a safe, consistent learning and living environment.

The Sustainable Life Project partners with local organizations to recruit young adults transitioning out of the foster care system to participate in a culinary internship program to learn about where food comes from and what it's like to work in a fast-faced restaurant. Youth transitioning out of foster care face unique challenges that make them especially vulnerable. Distrust, abuse, neglect and general lack of access to resources and guidance often make navigating adulthood difficult. Without primary needs like housing, vocational training and legal support, these youth frequently don’t have the luxury of dreaming beyond finding a home and employment.

The Sustainable Life Project (SLP), developed by the founders of Tender Greens Restaurants, believes firmly in the power of food to bring nourishment, healing and opportunity to young lives.

The Sustainable Life Project (SLP) offers an internship consisting of work experience at a Tender Greens restaurant, field trips to working farms and markets, and cooking classes held at Inner-City Arts in Downtown Los Angeles. Students work on culinary arts skills in the classroom, put them to use while working at Tender Greens and take field trips to Tender Greens’ partners including Scarborough Farms, Hollywood Farmer’s Market, La Brea Bakery, Silver Lake Farms and ReRide Ranch, to name a few, to learn about where food comes from. Upon completion of the program, students who are interested are given the best opportunity possible to get a full-time job at Tender Greens. For more information, please contact:
