Growing Girls. Growing Community.
The Lower Eastside Girls Club of NY has been ‘serving up food justice’ since 1996.
Through Photography, Art and Activism, and Culinary Training Programs the Girls Club is raising the next generation of environmental, entrepreneurial and ethical leaders.
The photography exhibition at the Essex Market (May 1-31, 2015) will contain images from LES Girls Club-run farmers markets, documentation of Lower East Side small businesses, the mural program in the First Street Community Garden and fantasy nature photos shot throughout the neighborhood.
