Blank Plate is an experimental workshop that aims to inspire teens from the Hunts Point section of the South Bronx to make new connections within their community and transform their relationship to food through creative culinary experiences. Collaborating between key players in various fields, the workshop is part of the Hunts Point’s food ecosystem with the potential to create a ripple effect of transformation in the neighborhood. The project was coordinated with several other food and education initiatives in the South Bronx with the goal of cultivating a food-centric community in an area currently facing issues of food justice.
