Youth Radio does healthy food production in two ways: a healthy snacks program and media asset creation. Interns prepare healthy snacks and a Friday night dinner for all youth in the education program. The goal of this portion of this program is not only to provide healthy food for our participants while engaged in learning, but to integrate food and nutrition themes into the classes themselves to drive healthy individual decision making. Youth Radio Eats is a food journal produced by Youth Radio interns, who work hands-on to make healthy and delicious food, research community food related actions, and explore and produce information about food from a youth perspective. Youth Radio also works with community partners such as the HOPE Collaborative to provide advocacy, drive policy change and create lasting community changes around how the environment influences healthy lifestyles.

Highlights of the Youth Radio Eats program include:
Cooking weekly dinner: They've made white bean chili, quiche, and chicken-broccoli stirfry, not to mention an entire Thanksgiving dinner. Along the way, they've worked as a team, learned cooking skills, and built up awareness about local foods. Check out the crew as they prepare for a Friday night dinner.
WTF (What's This Food)?: In this series, students take on an unfamiliar food and learn how to cook with it. Past episodes have included encounters with persimmons, pomegranates, artichokes, and goat cheese.
Why Are They Trying to Kill Us?: Students host a show exploring controversial health topics including trans fats, MSG, and high-fructose corn syrup.
Food-Related Film Screenings and Events: Field trips to watch "Food, Inc." and "Julie and Julia" have students thinking in new ways about the impact of food in their lives.

Youth Radio's Mobile Action Lab is a 2010 winner of the MacArthur Foundation's Digital Media and Learning global competition. Additional generous support comes from the National Science Foundation. The Lab's charge: Oakland-based young people partner with pro developers and entrepreneurs to propose, develop, and market apps that serve community needs.
Because it's time to build on what Youth Radio's best known for: producing award-winning media stories by young people for global outlets including National Public Radio, The Huffington Post, and iTunes' Public Radio Player. Given challenges in public education and transformations in media worlds, young people need to be creating the digital tools that determine who knows what, how news travels, and what makes change possible.
Our Lab's approach applies everything we've learned from working with youth to produce stories. That means young people drive the creative process, and youth-adult collaboration is key. Our partners and advisors include developers who've helped create some of the most popular apps on iTunes, a Facebook co-founder, a world-class expert on copyright and Internet law, and scholars working to promote and understand how young people learn -- and how schooling needs to change -- as a result of digital culture.
