Please plan to attend the Grace Discussion Group this coming Sunday, April 28th at 9:30 AM to hear about a wonderful grass roots organization, The Food Project which was started 21 years ago by 3 adults and 20 teenagers from the city and suburbs to grow and share food with communities. Since 1991, The Food Project has built a national model of engaging young people in personal and social change through sustainable agriculture and now works with over 150 teenagers and thousands of volunteers to farm on 40 acres in eastern Massachusetts in the towns and cities of Beverly, Boston, Lincoln, and Lynn.  Come and hear from the leaders and the teenagers who participate in all aspects of the program and benefit from valuable job experiences, deeply meaningful work and a personal connection with our food system and issues of food justice.  Bring the young people, you all!
