We're excited that you're joining HGP in envisioning a thriving and inclusive community, workforce, and local food system
The Challenge, now in its 8th year, was started by Food Solutions New England to provide individuals, organizations, and communities an opportunity to understand and help end racism in our food system. The Challenge is made up of daily, short email prompts delivered each morning from April 4 - 24. The emails allow individuals to participate in this transformative effort at their own pace.
In 2021, nearly 9,000 individuals and 900 officially participating organizations joined Food Solutions New England in raising awareness and deepening understanding of race and equity issues with a focus on the food system, addressing universally applicable issues of land access, food, health, and hunger.
We’re excited to partner with Food Solutions New England to offer this challenge.
You can learn in detail more about the challenge, what to expect when you participate, why it lasts 21-days, how it got started, and more here: https://foodsolutionsne.org/21-day-racial-equity-habit-building-challenge/
We will host a Kick-Off event on April 2nd during our Cesar Chavez Day of Service, which you can register for free belowhttps://bit.ly/ChavezDay
- During most years, Homeless Garden Project works with up to 2,500 volunteers at our farm, stores, and events. Community members are an important part of our mission and vision.
- 2020’s historic events showed us how racism still affects communities and individuals in profound ways. We saw the importance of learning to recognize institutional and systemic racism, so we can work together to create racial equity.
- HGP continues to focus our work on individuals experiencing homelessness. We believe this equity work will strengthen everything we do.
