The Regional Environmental Council is a grassroots food justice organization located in Worcester, Massachusetts. We bring people together to create a just food system and to build healthy, sustainable, and equitable communities in Worcester, MA and beyond.
We inspire community building and combat food insecurity and through three core programs:
- YouthGROW: We provide economic opportunity and personal / professional development to Worcester youth through urban agriculture.
- UGROW: We help the Worcester community grow their own through our network of 60+ urban gardens, including backyard, community and school gardens.
- Farmers’ Markets: In collaboration with local farmers, we bring fresh, healthy food to those who need it most through our Mobile and Standing Community Markets.
