Food Justice Summer 2011

This summer NY2NO has been hosting service learning brigades to New Orleans. Students engage in transformative workshops, participate in farm work, and take part in community building to obtain a critical analysis of the issues that exist in New Orleans, New York, and globally, and effective ways of combating them as youth. Below are some highlights:
Participants take in the Levee Tour as they approach the Levee along the Industrial Canal
A student reflects on the lack of development in the Lower 9th Ward
