We are excited to announce our collaboration with the Resilience Advocacy Project to host the first annual Teens for Food Justice Service and Advocacy Summit on May 16th. During this day of service, collaboration, and action, we will help to empower a diverse group of young leaders and raise the volume and impact of youth voices in advocating for a healthier and more sustainable New York.
In an experience-packed day running from 9 – 3, teams of teens will be engaged in a range of activities geared toward developing an understanding of and solutions to the key issues in food inequity, sustainability, and health in our city. The morning will be dedicated to hands-on service projects in food pantries, soup kitchens, urban gardens, and the Teens for Food Justice classroom hydroponic farm, in addition to conversations with local leaders in food justice and sustainability outreach. In the afternoon, the teen participants will be divided into workshop groups, where they will develop advocacy projects that they can take back to their own communities, and with which they can educate and engage other youth in positive social change.
