Africentric Picnic Basket Project

The Africentric Picnic Basket Project will include a Trivia Blitz to encourage safe exploration of parks and picnic areas. Volunteers will pack + distribute 50 packages with a selection of flavorful nutrient dense tropical plant based foods and snacks for families to enjoy together. At the Community Event, collaborators will moderate skills sharing workshops to raise awareness of local Food Security Issues and promote Food Waste Diversion. The project aims to supplement the households of youth parents and participating families.
