“Let's change the way we eat, let's change the way we live and let's change the way we treat each other.” -Tupac Shakur
Real is a platform for young people
across the US to shape a radically different food system through policy
We unite communities on the front lines of our broken food system—from farmworkers struggling for justice in the fields of Florida, to Detroit youth growing food in urban lots, and indigenous families using their traditional knowledge in Arizona. We’re all hurt by our food system, and we’re all trying to do something about it.
We are guided by values of equity and ecology, respect for all peoples, places, and cultures, and real health and justice for all. To us, this change begins with respect for ourselves and each other--with living real.
