Professors Lawrence Malinconico and Ben Cohen along with three student EXCEL Scholars operated a farm stand at 10th and Pine Street on Thursday evenings this summer. They harvested produce from Easton Urban Farm and Lafayette’s LaFarm and distributed it to residents. The farm stand was integral to the group’s research on food justice and sustainable technology, part of Lafayette’s Veggies in the Community program. The summer research focused on how the just distribution of food can remain tied to metrics of environmental sustainability.
