Tender Greens | 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. 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.
