Welcome to FRESH New London!
FRESH New London is a tiny but mighty food justice organization. We work through three buckets: Empowering Youth, Connecting Community and Growing Food to dismantle systemic oppression and build food sovereignty.

FRESH’s Three Buckets
Mission: for youth to gain leadership skills, work with a community and learn about food justice in New London
Mission: model and teach environmentally sustainable and small-scale cultivation as well as get food to people across New London
Mission: create authentic pathways for community engagement and make systemic change with partner organizations
Food Justice Corner
Food justice promotes a food system that is inclusive, community-led and participatory, without the exploitation of people, land, or the environment. It identifies and acts to remove the significant structural inequities that exist within our food and economic systems. Food justice activists seek to establish healthy, resilient communities with equitable access to nourishing and culturally appropriate food. –Portland/Multnomah Food Policy Council
