I’ve been working with The Food Project (TFP) since the summer of 2008, and since then I have slowly become more and more healthy. What I love about the way TFP approaches eating well with all the youth is that they never force anything on you – they simply educate you on what you could do in your personal life to improve your eating habits.
The youth Interns at TFP deliver a set of three workshops for community members. They address the food system, eating well, and the experience of farm workers. These workshops give people information that allows them to make educated decisions about what to eat.
This October 24 marks the first national Food Day – of many more to come! People all over the nation will meet with their legislatures, advocate for food access, and enjoy good food together. Youth Interns at TFP will be meeting up to prepare and enjoy a meal together, a simple, fun, and very doable way to celebrate Food Day.
