A LeDroit Park-based nonprofit farm is holding a free lunch for community members tomorrow.

Common Good City Farm (V Street NW between 2nd & 4th Streets) volunteers will use ingredients culled from the organization’s urban fields to cook healthy lunches for residents at noon.

The volunteers, who are teenagers from farm’s summer youth program, will prepare the meal with help from local chef Josephine Chu.

Common Good City Farm Executive Director Rachael Callahan said the teenagers are looking forward to showing off skills they learned in the program.

“The community lunches are a lot of fun”, Callahan said. “We really get to showcase the work that the kids in the summer youth program are doing and we get to share that with everybody in the community.”

Common Good City Farm was founded in 2007 to provide the community with access to fresh local produce.
