VIC Receives Grant from State Farm Youth Advisory Board

VIC receives $37,000 grant from the State Farm Youth Advisory Board (with matching funds from additional funders) — one of 68 projects that were submitted for funding from a pool of over 900. Under the issue of Health and Wellness, VIC proposed, “Cooking It Up”, a nutritious cooking video show by college and high school youth that integrates food justice, healthy eating & positive body image. It links wellness to holistic, long-term changes in attitudes about food. The purpose is to teach youth video production and culinary skills that align with their income, culture, daily schedules and neighborhood resources to showcase healthy and exciting relationships to eating and cooking. Based in the City Heights Neighborhood of San Diego, “Cooking It Up” will work with predominantly refugee youth and their community’s strong ties to refugee agriculture. The cooking show will be available on the web and through social media.
