WHAT WE DO
The REC fights for food justice across Worcester.
Simply put, food justice is:
Fair and equal access to healthy, sustainable and affordable food for all.
The REC’s Food Justice Program has established itself over the past 15 years as reliable and effective at promoting community leadership and creating access to food for Worcester’s most food-insecure communities by:
Developing and coordinating programs that bring community members together to address environmental justice issues in the places where we live, work, and play.
Organizing neighborhood residents–including youth–and training community leaders to tackle food justice issues in our neighborhoods.
Providing events and forums for food justice education, networking, visioning and problem-solving in Worcester and beyond.
Advocating at local, state, and national levels for public policies that foster food and social justice for healthy homes, schools, workplaces and neighborhoods.
