RYTF’s Urban Farm serves a dual purpose, providing fresh food and information on healthy eating to the entire community while offering management and customer service experience to its youth employees and volunteers. The Food Justice project serves RYTF’s larger goal of creating a productive, engaged youth presence in the Rockaway community through civic engagement and professional development.Your support is essential to help us sustain our critical work.
