Food justice curriculum in Washington, D.C. prompts students to explore food waste

Capital City Public Charter School in Washington D.C. gives 11th grade students the opportunity to learn about food justice while developing a civically minded research project. Youth reporters from SRL’s inaugural Homegrown Fellowship followed students Frank and Brenda as they investigated food waste and proposed changes to their administration around how their school serves lunch.

Produced by Ky’Sean Allen, Jor-El Dixon, Ceilidh Kern, Tessa Martin, and Mickey Watson from Frederick Douglass High School and John F. Kennedy High School in Maryland and Woodrow Wilson High School in Washington, D.C. as part of the Spring 2018 SRL Homegrown Fellowship led by Kristy Choi. Instruction provided by Student Reporting Labs. Station support provided by WETA and the PBS NewsHour.
