Special soup on the move!
Re-Thinking soup

Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos High School uses the term “social ecology” to help students understand the cause and effect between human beings and their environments. The “social” in “social ecology” also helps them understand that environments are different – some better than others – because of human manipulation of those environments. Urban agriculture is one example of a community taking control of its environment and making a positive impact on the members’ health and wellbeing. Join us and learn how this school’s hydroponic rooftop greenhouse has helped improve nutrition in Humboldt Park through their “Sofrito Project.”

Please make note this is a special Re-Thinking Soup hosted at the UIC Latino Cultural Center.

Soup served: Sofrito Black Bean Topic: Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos High School’s “Sofrito Project”
