The Food Dignity team includes dozens of people at three universities, one college, and five community-based organizations. Read more about the Food Dignity team on our Partners page.

Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation
We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Yanet Rojas, a community leader and dear friend to CHLDC. Yanet was a founding member of the Cypress Hills People's Food Committee, fighting for equitable access to healthy, affordable food in Cypress Hills, and a leader in the creation of the People's Garden/Jardin del Pueblo. She was also a parent leader in Cypress Hills Advocates for Education and at P.S. 89/Cypress Hills Community School. In all of this, she was a brilliant, energetic, dedicated teacher, community organizer and devoted mother to her beautiful daughters.
