Fallen Fruit from Rising Women: Empowering women through social enterprise and food justice
Picking local fruit that would otherwise go to waste, Crossroads residents and Claremont college students produce jams from seasonal fruit and use the profits to fund our larger food justice program. We would like to expand our program by establishing a co-op model and developing our pilot Social Entrepreneurs Academy into two concrete program for Crossroads graduates. The programs will help the women build business and financial literacy while offering economic opportunities for graduates.
