On August 7th, we welcomed Mayor Thomas Menino and his Cabinet for a special lunch at our West Cottage Farm in Dorchester. It was a great opportunity to hear from some of our Summer Youth Program alumni, including the co-founder of Fresh Food Generation (SYP ’99) Cassandria Campbell and TFP staffer Jess Liborio (SYP ’94), as well as our Board of Trustees Chair Dylan Sanders and Executive Director Selvin Chambers. Most importantly, we acknowledged Mayor Menino’s continued support of The Food Project over his many years in office, for which we are very grateful. Now in his final term, we bid him farewell from the Mayor's office, though we’re still hopeful for a visit now and then! For all in attendance, it was a chance to reflect on the ways in which The Food Project influences and inspires our lives and the lives we touch.
