Youth Speak: A Dream, a Pledge


Throughout our summertime Farm Lunch series, our interns are given a chance to speak about their experiences at The Food Project, their communities, their dreams, and the change they are effecting in their own lives and the lives of others. On Monday, July 22, Boston intern Keyara Gethers spoke at the second lunch of the summer series. Keyara is a first-time intern in the summer of 2013, having been a Summer Youth Program worker last summer and a member of DIRT crew in the 2012-2013 academic year.

A natural public speaker, Keyara entertained participant workers of our Summer Youth Program, staff, donors and supporters, and friends with a humorous speech on her dreams to become a chef and her pledge to no longer consume any fast food — except Popeyes!
