Over 225 Students from all over Santa Cruz County learned about Food Justice at the Harvest Festival!

This past Tuesday over 225 students from Santa Cruz County public and alternative education schools converged on the "Food, What?!" farm for a morning of food justice, nutrition, and youth empowerment education. We partnered with local organizations on workshops and activities to create a community collaboration focused on raising awareness of food justice in a youth centered way. We popped fresh popcorn, made apple pies, learned about the power of our dollar, pet baby goats, ate delicious quesadillas from the Food Truck, took hay rides around the farm and much more! It was a super fun day that truly demonstrated the power of collaboration between Santa Cruz teachers, administrators, and local organizations.

HUGE THANKS to the teachers for bringing their classes, the Wellness Committee for organizing busses, Gail for the Goats, Fran for the Food Truck, Carol for the College information, Conner for the seed bombs, Victor for reppin' CAN, the Life Lab staff & interns for working stations, Volunteers for coming through, and the "Food, What?!" youth for holding it down!

Happy Halloween!
