Youth Fieldtrip

Crew members in the Fall 2021 Youth Program visited the Tantaquidgeon Museum on October 16th! There, Mohegan culture keepers taught about the history of this land and its peoples, traditional Mohegan foodways, and what it looks like to decolonize diets and land relations. The Fall 2021 Youth Program thanks Jason, Greg, and Sharon for graciously hosting crew members at the Tantaquidgeon Museum!

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
