About Youth and Community Food (YCF)

at the C. S. Mott Group for Sustainable Food Systems at MSU

Welcome to our web site!

The Youth Community Food initiative of the CS Mott Group was initiated to further the engagement of youth in all aspects of sustainable food systems and community food projects.

The YCF initiative goal is to support and enhance the capacity of school and community food projects across Michigan through technical assistance, networking, participatory research and outreach. By enabling better access to information, tools, and resources through networking, and peer-to-peer educational opportunities, the opportunity for knowledge, resource and skill sharing, and the capacity building of local initiatives is strengthened. By providing opportunities for youth to engage in sustainable food today, we build a stronger fabric for our community’s health and social well being tomorrow. More...
