To support the Food Empowerment Initiative. Harlem youth learn about food justice, horticulture, sustainable garden design, as well as youth organizing. They operate a weekly youth farmers market, engage with the community through cooking demonstrations, staff information tables that provide residents with health information, guides to local resources, and healthy recipes. They also engage in counter-marketing work, including teaching workshops on marketing and branding tactics of large food chains and their impact on health and lifestyle choices.
