Tickets are sliding scale - starting from $10 and going up to $30. Whichever you feel works best for your budget. If the price of tickets isn't in your budget, feel free to shoot us a message and we'll be more than happy to get you a code for a free ticket. Our goal is to include everyone regardless of funds. You may also message us to reserve your spot and pay at the door. If you have any other concerns or questions around accessibility, we'd love to hear from you!

Come learn, share, eat and grow with us!

Love, The Youth Food Network
