Racial Equity Lens

Systemic and Institutional barriers that perpetuate the long-standing opportunity and achievement gaps between white and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) students must be addressed in programs that serve youth. By embedding racial equity principles in farm to school programming, we can use our collective power to challenge racism in education, food systems, and farm to school overall.
