The Fresh Producers Debut Presentation

_The Fresh Producers_ Debut Presentation

Did you know that although the Bronx Terminal Produce Market offers one of largest selections of fresh fruits & vegetables in the world, many Bronx residents feel there aren’t enough places to get fresh produce in their neighborhoods? So where does our fresh produce come from? Where does it go? Who decides?

CUP and Teaching Artist Kathryn Sclavi worked with a group of public high school students from KAPPA International High School in the Bronx to investigate these questions. The students got out of the classroom and into the garden to dig deeper, visiting sites like a community garden and an urban farm. They talked to a City Council Member, a food distributor, and community food advocates.  The crew took what they learned, and with the help of graphic designer Joelle Riffle, created a booklet that uses artwork to teach others more about fresh produce.

Join us for the debut of their project at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, where students will present their booklet and discuss their creative process.
