Our Vigorous Youth mission is to support MFFC's mission and vision through food access programming, bike education and advocacy, and professional and personal development workshops.
MFFC founded the Vigorous Youth group in the Fall of 2008 to serve residents from ages 14-21 years. Through our year round programming and employment, youth focus on their professional and personal development, and learn about their role in improving the physical and food environment in Mattapan.
