Educational & Youth Programs
Our DBCFSN Food Warriors program engages young people in activities designed to teach them all aspects of the food system – from food justice and environmental awareness to agriculture techniques and healthy food preparation. Its purpose is to develop a sense of agency in our youth so that they become empowered to make decisions around food that is healthy and beneficial not only to them, their families, and their communities as a whole, but also to the sustainability of the environment for generations to come.
The Food Warriors Youth Development Program currently operates at three Detroit sites; Timbuktu Academy of Science and Technology, and Middle School and the Shrine #1 of the Pan African Orthodox Church.
