Alix Davidson, a BSK alumna living in Louisville, has been Director of Programs at The Food Literacy Project since 2019. The Food Literacy Project engages young people in south, west, and central Louisville in experiential learning opportunities to connect with the land around them and discover how their food is grown. Youth are empowered to use that knowledge to work toward policy, systems, and environmental change around food justice and health equity in our community. Alix says,
“Last year, we were able to donate nearly 2,200 pounds of youth-grown produce from Iroquois Urban Farm in Louisville’s south end through local distribution partners. We also shared over 2,000 seed packets with gardening and cooking resources to promote food sovereignty among our neighbors. One of the most meaningful parts of this work for me is that it happens right in my neighborhood. I get to work alongside incredible young people to envision and work toward a more equitable food system for everyone in our community.”
