Hip Hop is Green provides powerful, life changing programs designed for the health and wellbeing of underserved, low income, Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and urban youth and their families.

Our projects provide the opportunity for high participation by community members who can use their lived experiences to increase their capacity to be leaders and participate in project based design and implementation. The youth and community provide their point of view to inform the work to create community driven and community developed, innovative solutions for environmental & economic activism and food justice.

Our youth internship program focuses on healthy eating, food security and entrepreneurship. Our goal is to inspire youth leadership through hands on youth participation on several project based programs.

Here are the components of our program:

  • Hip Hop is Green Chapters
  • Cherry Street Urban Farm Lab
  • Youth Internship Program
  • Culinary Anthropology Cooking Classes
  • Food Share and Food Distribution
  • School Food Program
  • Hip Hop is Green Live Events
