Rap for Food
Rap for Food
Rap For Food’s mission is to support localization, sustainable food systems, and youth gardening through the arts.
Our Target Audience:
Anybody that eats! We hope to inspire everyone in Michigan to carefully consider the food they eat, where it comes from, and who grows it. We cater to youth and adult audiences with separate educational material, but find that all age groups love our songs. Schools, community organizations, events, and university groups benefit from our high energy performances and writing workshops. We are glad to participate in any event that commemorates or seeks improvements in our local food system. We strive to use our talents to reinforce and celebrate what we can do as individuals to improve our health, local food access, and stewardship of the Earth!
Rap For Food participates in many events in southeast Michigan including festivals, conferences, fundraisers, farmers markets, school performances and concerts. We are currently developing a school program to qualify for SNAP-ED public funds. We partner with SEMIS <link to> to help bring more environmental, arts-incorporated, and place-based education to schools in Southeast Michigan. We will partner with any organization aligned with our goals, for instance those committed to local food production, permaculture, community gardening, healthy food in schools, environmental stewardship and community empowerment. Together we can make a difference!
