NYSTEC Volunteers at South End Children's Café in Albany

A lively NYSTEC crew were present for an event at the South End Children’s Café in Albany, NY on Thursday April 13th. These NYSTEC volunteers gave their time to help address the issue of food insecurity, food equality and food justice in a creative way.

The South End Children’s Cafe is an after school program designed to impact food insecurity, address food equality and food justice, enhance academic success and positively influence the physical and mental health of children residing in the South End of Albany.  The program offers free, healthy dinnertime meals along with homework help, academic enrichment, mentoring, exercise and participation in the arts Monday through Friday.
