FEEST is building a youth-led movement for healthy schools. Focusing on the need for healthier, more culturally relevant food in school, we support the leadership of youth in South Seattle and South King County to transform the culture and policies that directly impact their lives. Our work challenges the root causes of food injustice by placing those most impacted at the forefront of change.
FEEST sets the table for young people to transform the health and equity of their community by gathering around food & working towards systems change.
Food Empowerment Education & Sustainability Team (FEEST) works at the nexus of nutrition education, health equity, food access, racial justice, and youth empowerment to increase health in low income communities of color and develop leadership for lasting change.
