Through TFFJ, I am helping to spread awareness of good nutrition and healthy living. I am making an impact, helping people live healthier lives.

Teens for Food Justice is able to provide students with the leadership skills to go out and be comfortable advocating for change in their society.

The produce provided by TFFJ has made me look at what I eat differently and I am more energetic.

Our organization earned a 2024 Platinum Seal of Transparency! Now, everyone can see our strategy, metrics, and achievements.

Teens for Food Justice has been awarded a 4-star rating by Charity Navigator, the world’s largest and most trusted nonprofit evaluator.  This is the highest possible rating and means that you can give with confidence.
