APRIL & Kelly's Kitchen are Excited to Present...A Four-Course Series on the Intersection of Food Justice and Disability Justice

APRIL is excited to partner with Kelly's Kitchen to provide a four-course series on the intersection of food justice and disability justice. Kelly's Kitchen is a national non-profit organization based out of Charleston, South Carolina that promotes healthy nutrition in the whole community, with a focus on providing education on ways to access healthy food, explore employment possibilities in the food and beverage industry for people with disabilities, ensure food security, and learn healthy preparation techniques.

Oftentimes, populations who need support, resources, and access to food security resources the most are the ones who already face inequities and barriers.

Join us for this free four-course series on the second Tuesday of the month February - May 2024 from 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm EST.

Please Note: Course #2 will be held on the THIRD Tuesday of the month (March), which is March 19, 2024.
