MIAMI — Children attending summer camp at Family Action Network Movement (FANM) learned a key lesson during their final week: how the climate and food deserts impact neighborhoods such as Liberty City and Little Haiti.

“We try to implement fun ways for kids to be healthy and have access to nutritious food and to learn how to be stewards of the planet and how to foster that relationship,” FANM’s climate organizer, Pia Palomino, said. “I wanted to show how easy it is to grow your own vegetables.”
