AIMS is an innovative mental health cooking project. We work with people to improve their lives and wellness through hands-on work with healthy food, opportunities for meaningful work and social rehabilitation in kitchen and farm/garden and community settings, connections with information and resources for healthier living, and advocating for food justice and access to healthy food for the Tenderloin community.
