Jackson Ward Youth Peace Team

About this Meal Train page

The Richmond Peace Team (RPT) is a collective that establishes youth-led and centered spaces working to empower skill-building around self-regulatory behavior through creative curriculums, self-love, and self-advocacy practices.
 Thank you to all those that are rallying behind The Jackson Ward Youth Peace Team Meal Train and our mutual aid collection efforts. Our foundational program, The Jackson Ward Youth Peace Team needs your continued support to help bridge food access gaps for students and families, to support sustained youth-centered programming. Our youth leaders will continue to be active and consulted in every decision and effort! We have collaborated with Gilpin residents to generate a list of needs and will be using the funds we raise to ensure access to programming, household needs, and sustainable operations. The Jackson Ward Youth Peace Team is excited to be partnering with Stoplight Gelato Cafe, a beloved, local Jackson Ward business, as a drop-off point for folks to continue to donate supplies and non-perishable food to our mutual aid efforts in support of Gilpin Court families.
