At local farmers markets and community events we host food and rap competitions that empower youth to promote healthy growing, cooking, eating and living. See special performances by Refresh Collective artists, Fresh Force interns and Fresh Camp students. Be inspired by Cleveland youth, take their recipe and support local farmers so you can flex the freshest food in your own kitchen!
