Regional RIC @ East New York Farms Wrap-Up

On October 11, 2014 East New York Farms!/United Community Centers hosted a “Regional Rooted In Community Youth Summit" with participants from 10 projects arriving from 5 states in the Northeast. The day started with a breakfast of Brooklyn bagels, laughs and energizers led by interns from East New York Farms.  Youth learned West African, West Indian music, Latin, and hip hop dances representing the diverse cultures of East New York. 

With the goal of developing youth leadership and a youth voice in food justice, we spent the morning in workshops facilitated by participating groups.  The Urban Nutrition Initiative taught about “Media and Food Choices”, Cultivating Community taught about “Helping Seniors Eat Their Veggies”, the Center for Environmental Transformation taught about “Food Systems and Hunger.”
