Lexington High School volunteers distributed peaches to Lexington folks during the Eat In, Act Out event on August 21st at the Lexington Farmers’ Market. The purpose of Eat In, Act Out is to inform citizens about the importance of eating locally grown food. The project is a youth initiative, meaning that the teenagers design and carry out the entire event.

This year’s event in Lexington, MA, led by Emily Miller, a Lexington High School Junior, included distributing local peaches in Lexington Center, giving out samples of peach crumb cake and a family pesto recipe along with blueberry lemonade. Other volunteers included Becky Pittore, Tasneem Islam, Coco Caporal, Victoria Goetz, Nick Page and Connor Leahy.
