Grow or Die
REEP's food justice campaign!
We deserve healthy affordable food.
Companies manipulate us into eating foods that lead to illness and death. All we have is corner stores, liquor stores, and fast food restaurants. As a result, we have higher rates of diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and heart disease. The food system we know is rooted in racism, poverty, and corporate greed. Food should be about life, growth, health, community, and justice.
We need to grow our own food.
Many of our families have experience growing food. We should be proud of our own resources and provide for ourselves.
We will use vacant land to grow food.
Our neighborhoods are fully of empty lots that have been unused for years. The existence of so many lots is a result of Boston's history of racism and classism. Neglected and empty land causes problems for our neighborhoods, but we can change that by building gardens.
We will grow food together, strengthen our neighborhoods, and improve our health now and in the future.
