AUNI Youth Workshops!

AUNI Youth Workshops!

Our youth interns had a great time on July 2nd attending each of the workshops! Led by our AUNI staff, the students learned about nutrition and food supply, food in change, and personal identity in diversity. One of the liveliest workshops included a food justice cheer in the beginning! You can check out a snippet of the chant on our Instagram at @agatstonuni.
