Tech Valley students conduct food assessment | Community Spirit
EAST GREENBUSH - Freshmen at Tech Valley High School are coonducting a Community Security Food Assessment to determine what keeps residents of Troy from getting healthy food.
The students will examine the food sold in stores in North Troy as well as the type of soil that exists in the empty lots in the city.
The students will begin their research at 9 a.m. on Wednesday and will spend two hours surveying what food is available in stores and establishments in Troy. They will start their study at 3361 Sixth Avenue.
On September 18, the class will return to that area of North Troy, from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m., to sample soil on vacant lots in the city to determine if they are fit to grow food on.
Students will work on the project over the coming weeks and present their findings to a Story Harvest event planned by the Collard City Growers for October 20.
