Many people come to The Food Project during the summer and are inspired by the beautiful, healthy food, and highly motivated, diverse teens working with passion towards a common mission. It seems to flow effortlessly. The truth is, our summers are the complementary outcome of the other half of the year when 60 youth in Dirt Crew and Root Crew engage with each other, community members and volunteers on our urban and suburban farms and communities in the fall and winter seasons.
The learning and actions are dynamic and “real-time” at hunger relief organizations, farmers’ markets, greenhouses, in workshops they facilitate, and in the powerful feedback sessions with their peers and supervisors. In the Winter Institute, we invite you into hands-on learning our models in conversation with Food Project youth and staff.
