The Washington Post has a story about the recent “Food Justice Youth Summit” that was held in the nation’s capital.

According to the story, “Hundreds of students from various D.C. public schools had come up with proposals for making healthy foods more affordable. They had plans for improving school kitchens and cafeterias, as well as ideas for expanding community gardens. And there was a certain urgency to their presentations, the result of critical thinking about a future in peril — their own.”
