Feature Friday: Coppin Community Center

Join the UCSC this Spring Quarter for our Feature Fridays conversations on Chicago’s environmental sustainability landscape, with a special emphasis on food access and justice. Each week, we’ll feature community leaders from our network of partners who will help us understand the past, present, and future of food access and food deserts in Chicago, learn how community-led efforts in urban agriculture, conservation, and food education are addressing these challenges, and share the ways you can get involved and take action.

This week, we’re excited to welcome Frankye Parham of Coppin, to share about their recently annouced food pantry, efforts in creating a circular economy in Woodlawn. You can learn more about their work, and their many programs on their website.

A light lunch will be provided, and your RSVP helps us plan.
