Member Duties : MAP has a history of addressing food insecurity, youth unemployment and food justice in Buffalo. Since 2003 we have employed and trained over 700 low income youth in urban agriculture, food systems, microenterprise and social justice, while increasing healthy food access to over 10,000 households through our Mobile Market. MAP will complete construction on a new 11,000 sq. ft. Farmhouse and Food Community Training Center in June 2018 with a goal of furthering our efforts to increase healthy food access and reduce hunger. The VISTA will work closely with MAP staff and youth to develop and support new curriculum, partnerships and protocols for all Farmhouse activities, including our Mobile Market and raise community awareness about food-based education and food-access initiatives. The VISTA will be crucial in helping us serve more youth and families, further increase food security and build organizational capacity.
