Earlier in the fall, the Citizenship and Organizing Group at MAP had
been brainstorming different ways to get feedback from the community on
their project to bring healthy fresh food to corner stores. We had data
from our summer program pointing to healthy corner stores as being a
very important project, but we had more questions we wanted to ask
people to help verify that data.
In November, at NESAWG's "It Takes A Region" conference, I met a passionate young woman, Jessy Gill, who shared her experience addressing racial equity issues as Program Director at World Farmers located in Lancaster, MA.
