The Food Literacy Project strives to advance equity and increase belonging among traditionally excluded and marginalized populations. We address gaps in knowledge, experience, and access to empower young people, their families, and neighbors urgently in need of positive interaction with and regular access to healthful foods. Youth become change agents, promoting healthy foodways and environmental sustainability in their families, schools, and communities. We believe Food Justice is Social Justice.
