The students spent the morning at Rosie’s Place, the first women’s shelter in the United States.

In the afternoon, the group traveled to The Food Project, an organization with a mission is to create a thoughtful and productive community of youth and adults from diverse backgrounds who work together to build a sustainable food system. Their community produces healthy food for residents of the city and suburbs, provides youth leadership opportunities, and inspires and supports others to create change in their own communities.
While this would normally be harvesting week, the long winter is keeping the herbs and vegetables in the ground for a little bit longer. Students helped clean up the greenhouse in preparation for the next planting and did some (more) snow removal.
Associate Director of Academic Advising Carolyn Caveny and Adjunct Campus Minister Sr. Barbara Gutierrez, SND joined us for dinner, and Sr. Barbara led the students in a reflection on food justice.
