NC FYI: A Brief Introduction
The Food Youth Initiative (FYI) is a project housed at the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) and carried out with many community partners.
Mission: Envisioning and supporting the advancement of a Just food system. FYI is supporting a statewide youth food justice network to support capacity building for food advocacy work.
FYI provides training and networking opportunities to young people aged 16-24 from youth groups across the state who are already working on agricultural and food justice issues and interested in affecting policy in their local communities.
The statewide network will amplify the youth perspective on food system needs and opportunities in North Carolina, while developing an experienced collective of young leaders in the local and sustainable food system movement.
