SCI AmeriCorps Members Facilitate 'Lynn Grows' Listening Sessions

SCI AmeriCorps members Olivia Boggiano-Peterson and Annie Gibbons have collaborated on the faciliation of listening sessions for Lynn Grows, an initiative to create a better food system that works for everyone in Lynn. Lynn Grows is run by a steering committee of residents and community stakeholders who have put together a vision and list of six priority areas (including food access, school food, community gardens and others) to help improve the Lynn food system. Now, the AmeriCorps members are organizing listening sessions with groups of people around the city to present the work that the Lynn Grows Steering Committee has done and gather feedback on the vision and priorities. Annie Gibbons is serving at the Lynn Food & Fitness Alliance and Olivia Boggiano-Peterson is serving at The Food Project.
