What's the point?

The YFAP aims to:
  • expand upon existing work in the area of food access and security.
  • include and connect youth in 3 neighborhoods of Albuquerque: the South Valley, the Southeast Heights, and Santa Barbara/Martineztown.
  • combat the obesity epidemic in a manner that engages youth.
  • educate the youth involved and their communities about the nature of the food system.
  • encourage the development of a personal relationship to food.
  • mobilize residents to take action to improve food access and food quality for families living on a budget.
These involved communities have disproportionately high levels of negative social and health outcomes, but at the same time, they all have strong community assets that can be mobilized and leveraged for the purposes of this project.
