Food & Photos at Hope Community


Hope’s youth-led program explored food systems, place, and personal narrative through photography. The Food, Land, and Community team at Hope conducted year-round activities related to growing, harvesting, and sharing food.  This project was an endeavor that puts youth in the center of their own food stories.

Opportunities for both fun and learning abounded. Field trips included a visit to Mia galleries, visiting a farm, and venturing to meet with other youth interested in food systems.

The group was co-facilitated by Ryan Stopera, a professional photographer and videographer and Abé (uh-bee) Levine, a garden educator at Hope and writer.
