Addressing Food Justice
February 26th Food Box Giveaway
In continued partnership with the Office of Community Health, Equity, and Engagement, we provided KIPP Bloom families with a box of fresh food. As we continue to focus on food justice, we are grateful for partnerships like these that allow us to offer nutritious food directly to families.
January 29th regional community circle with Ayinde Cartman
Our first community circle of the year, Poetry for Progress was curated around elevating the Whole Child Initiative and served as our regional kick-off to Black History Month. This virtual circle, featuring Chicago poet and organizer, Ayinde Cartman, focused on our priority of food justice, and invited collective reflection on our vision for organizational impact through poetry, conversation, and joy. Inspired by what we all love most about being together and fueled by the input and perspectives of our many staff members, this time together was a place for meaningful conversation, inclusion, authenticity, and truth.
