*Volunteer at Pomonok Community Center this Summer! *

During this service-learning program, students will support the Food Access
Initiative at the Pomonok Community Center. This program will give students
the opportunity to explore a community-centered approach to addressing food
insecurity in NYC. Students will be able to volunteer at the weekly farmers
market, the food pantry, and the garden throughout the week. Tasks
could include setting up for events, selling and distributing food,
assisting with healthy cooking and eating demonstrations, and general
garden maintenance tasks such as planting, watering, harvesting and
composting. Through this project, students will learn multiple strategies
to increase access to healthy food while building stronger community ties
at Pomonok while striving for food justice.
