BFCW is a nonprofit organization housed in the Billings Forge apartment complex in the Frog Hollow neighborhood of Hartford, CT.

Working with our neighbors, partners and funders, we invest in the community by promoting access to healthy and affordable food; by engaging youth and families in activities that foster growth and learning; and by offering people opportunities to explore, prepare for and find jobs in the culinary arts.

The Director of Youth Development will work with a team consisting of community members, chefs, gardeners, artists, and educators to establish and implement programming. BFCW is home to 47 raised garden beds, a commercial kitchen, a large multi-use space, and a year-long farmer's market.
