Harvard Allston Farmers Market
Mission The Food Literacy Project (FLP) cultivates an understanding of food from the ground up. Education focuses on four integrated areas of food and society: sustainability, nutrition, food preparation and community. Ultimately, the project goal is to promote enduring knowledge, enabling consumers to make informed food choices. What we do FLP Reps: The Food Literacy Project employs 18 students (FLP Reps) to do special projects (host professors, movie screenings, cooking classes, study breaks, field trips, etc.) in each dorm. We also have a graduate rep at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Find the FLP blog here! Special Events: The Food Literacy Project organizes special food-related events for the Harvard and Cambridge community including film series, book talks, and cooking classes.

Cooking Classes: The Food Literacy Project coordinates multiple cooking classes with HUDS's chefs and FLP Reps, including House classes in the Masters' residences, Thanksgiving cooking classes, specialized J-term classes, and Chef Breslin's famous Cooking for the Culinarily Challenged. Volunteering: The Food Literacy Project organizes food-related volunteer days with groups such as City Sprouts and the Boston Food Bank. Gardens: HUDS and FLP are sponsors of the Harvard Community Garden and also help to run gardens in the Houses.
