A Project That Became a Movement: 20 Years


This fall, The Food Project begins commemorating our first 20 years of creating “a thoughtful and productive community of youth and adults from diverse backgrounds who work together to build a sustainable food system.” In the coming year, through newsletters, events, and on our website, we’ll be featuring profiles of the people – alumni of youth programs and former staff and board members – who helped make The Food Project what it is today.

We’ll also continue looking at our present and future work . From our origins as a project of Drumlin Farm in Lincoln, Mass., we’ve grown into a national leader, unique in our innovative work to integrate youth development with sustainable farming. With 20 years of learning and growing under our belt, we stand poised to push the movement further to make real food – food that is nourishing to consumers, producers, and the environment – a reality for everyone, in Eastern Massachusetts and beyond.
