The PC Presents at Feast Mass Tonight!

Hello All,

We'll be visiting The Food Project's greenhouse tonight, presenting our work and seeking donations at this season's Feast Mass! Wish us luck and considering coming this evening unless you've got other ghoulish plans!

The Food Project has built a national model of engaging young people in personal and social change through sustainable agriculture. Each year, we work with over a hundred teens andthousands of volunteers to farm on 40 acres in eastern Massachusetts in the towns and cities of Beverly, Boston, Lincoln and Lynn. 

Their focus is on identifying and transforming a new generation of leaders by placing teens in unusually responsible roles, with deeply meaningful work.

Feast Mass is a recurring dinner party that gives micro-grants to make good ideas happen. During each dinner, people present proposals for creative, community-based projects that need funding.

Everyone votes, and the winner receives a grant funded entirely from the night’s ticket sales.
