Community Food Leaders

The Community Food Leaders are teens who become leaders by assisting with the implementation of direct education programs, promoting and advocating for improved food access, raising awareness of the SNAP education project, and supporting fresh food resources such as urban farms and gardens and local farmers’ markets in their own community (28 weeks during the growing season, typically 10-12 hours per week).

They also participate in cooking demonstrations and canvassing outreach efforts in target neighborhoods, distributing information about opportunities offered by FLP, such as the South Points Farmers Market and family engagement activities and events. The Community Food Leaders offer support to the Field-to-Fork clubs, serving as teaching assistants in those programs and being role models to younger students who are learning about healthy eating.
