RIC Food Justice Conference

This past summer, Delta Fresh Foods sponsored a group of Mississippi youth to attend the Rooted in Community (RIC) Food Justice Conference in Lower Hudson Valley, NY. Here these young adults get involved in conversations about modern day social justice issues amongst each other. The grassroots movement strives to bring youth and young adults together to help create healthy communities, boost community garden and food justice efforts, as well as doing environmental justice work. 

We are so proud to say we have a few of our own community members involved in this outstanding leadership program. We're hoping to send an even bigger group to the Food Justice Conference next summer!
