A quick thought before work:
In addition to creating relationships with restaurants, you might to also
might want think of your local Community Supported Agriculture ("CSA") groups
and/or a local farmer's market as an outlet for your veggies and greens, if
you produce them in sufficient quantities.
This would be a great way to introduce your young people to the workplace by
having them collect the produce early on a Saturday, get into an adult van,
set up a table and sell the products that they grew themselves. Some young
Bronx people , organized by the Vista program, sell high quality lettuces and
cherry tomatoes at Greenmarkets (city run open air farmer's markets)
This Bronx group also has a greenhouse which makes their project year-round.
Also, hooking up with a local CSA (where consumers sign up for a quantities
of veggies on a weekly basis) might be another source for your produce if
you and can keep up with the demand.
