Our Land: Project Feed The Hood

1202 Our Land Feed the Hood

December 14, 2018 – Project Feed the Hood is a food justice program in Albuquerque that connects communities with healthy food and young people with the land (and a paycheck). Begun out of the Southwest Organizing Project, a 38-year old nonprofit focused on social justice, Project Feed the Hood has a community garden not far from the Albuquerque Sunport, the Ilsa and Rey Garduño Community Garden, and pilot programs at ten schools, including Van Buren Middle School, where co-founder Travis McKenzie teaches.

On this month’s repeat episode of Our Land, we visit with McKenzie, SWOP members, student interns and McKenzie’s mentor, South Valley farmer Lorenzo Candelaria.
