To nurture the growth of a diverse, accessible, and equitable local food system, promote economic opportunities, and empower youth through social change education.
What We Do
We imagine a community in which all youth and families have access to fresh, healthy, and culturally appropriate food, where people of all incomes have economic opportunities, where vacant lots are transformed into productive green spaces, and where youth and their families are engaged in their communities.
Massachusetts Avenue Project (MAP) is a nonprofit urban farm located on Buffalo's West Side. MAP employs youth year round and teaches them job readiness and leadership skills through farming, our Mobile Market, kitchen and nutrition education, as well as food policy and civic engagement.
