NEYFS: Creativity Project

This space will be a community-centered extension of NEYFS with an emphasis on food security, media development, continuing education, and building community. The new space will be a host site for large group classes that highlight nutrition education, skill development, and creative media projects. It will house a large, easily accessible food pantry in an area designated as a food desert in the 99202 zip code. The outdoor space will be a site for community events, garden education, film festivals, and additional passion projects to help youth discover creative outlets. NEYFS will provide a shuttle service between the 99202 and 99207 facilities, as well as to the surrounding residential neighborhoods and schools in the immediate area.
