Last night FoodWhat, Jovenes Sanos and Rooted in Community, partnered with the Community Agroecology Network for their annual "Intercambio" hosting multiple youth delegations from Mexico and Nicaragua.  After sharing stories of each of our work in Santa Cruz/Watsonville, Mexico, and Central America, we experienced our connection in all being part of a global youth movement for food justice and community food sovereignty. The youth then teamed up to create a delicious meal together. They mixed in small groups to make chicken tacos with tortillas from scratch (see photo), a citrus salsa, fresh guacamole, a cabbage slaw, spanish rice, beans, a FoodWhat grown roots and squash medley, and a strawberry crisp with berries from Watsonville.

Next Tuesday, it's your turn!  Join us at our Winter Gathering at Assembly.  This is a free event.  If you are planning on coming but haven't yet RSVP'd, you can do so here.
