Origami Veggies

Food deserts are a major problem for low-income families like those in north Troy, NY. A food desert simply means that fruits and vegetables are difficult to access in particular regions because grocery stores are too far away and a lack of personal/public transportation. Working to provoke discussion and knowledge about where to find veggies and educating the public on nutrition, my group held an origami workshop at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. We design origami vegetable paper with fun facts and where to buy each respective vegetable. We aimed the activity towards kids and families. We all had a ton of fun!
