We would like to send out a huge thank you to our generous and dedicated team of supporters who, together, raised nearly $32,000 for Teens for Food Justice in the
Crowdrise Holiday Challenge!
Funds raised this holiday season will boost the development & launch of two key initiatives:
- Green Team—our new afterschool program, training New Beginnings 6th and 7th graders to be hydroponic farmers and health and sustainability ambassadors within their own school this year.
- Teens for Food Justice Farm 2, which will double the impact of our service learning program through a second farm site in fall 2015. We look forward to bringing fresh produce, nutrition education and sustainability training to hundreds more NYC families.
Thanks to this vital show of support by our donors, we will continue to empower teen volunteers on their journey to becoming the next generation of food justice advocates and leaders, committed and equipped to create lasting social change for communities in need.
