Training and Empowering Food Advocates
To advance democratic participation in urban food systems, the Institute prepares individuals to become effective advocates. We engage young people in activities that help them reduce the promotion of unhealthy food in their communities.
YOFE engages young people in reducing the demand for unhealthy food in their communities through “counter-marketing” campaigns and policy advocacy. These young people then bring these multi-media campaigns to their schools, youth organizations, peers, and families.
