South End Healthy Food Initiative

We have been collaborating with other organizations in our neighborhood – the Trinity Alliance, Grand Street Community Arts (GSCA), and AVillage, Inc. – to support healthy food practices in the South End of Albany. AVillage, Inc. has been running the South End Farmer’s Market every Saturday from 1-5 pm. The Market is in Lincoln Park on the east side of Eagle St. and will continue into October. Volunteers are needed to help set up and staff the market, and donations from organic gardens are greatly appreciated! Please reply to this email if you are interested.

This collaboration dovetails with the transition of the CSE into a youth entrepreneurial training program. Radix will continue working with Youth Organics, a program of GSCA, as part of the program.

This collaboration will also be hosting nutrition, cooking, urban food production, and sustainability workshops during the year – details to be announced. If you are interested in helping with any of these projects, please let us know. We have received a grant from the United Way to begin funding these activities – but your help is needed! All donations are greatly appreciated. Click here to make a donation and become a member of the Radix Center.
