IMPORANT: Because of this internship will take Teens all over the city, Teens will need reliable transportation to and from a central meeting spot each week, whether rides from family members or rides on public transportation (we provide bus passes).
TGG will provide school bus transportation for field trips from the central meeting spot to other parts of the city.
Food justice is as big as giving communities healthy foods they need or creating your own small garden to produce foods to help yourself and others to become healthier individuals.
