Our Mission in Action

Empowering Communities Through Storytelling

At We All Need Food and Water, we believe in the power of stories to inspire and educate. Our focus is on providing equity-based environmental education that empowers communities to take meaningful action against climate change. By integrating local narratives and experiences, we foster a deeper connection to the environment and each other.

Through our engaging puppet shows and community events, we break down barriers to discussing big topics like climate change by highlighting the critical role of sustainable practices and collective responsibility. Our initiatives are designed not only to educate but also to celebrate communities’ resilience and creativity in facing environmental challenges.


Protecting our kids' tomorrows starts with taking action today.

Since we all love the precious children in our lives, let’s not just give them lip service. Let’s take meaningful action to demonstrate our love by protecting their futures. Every dream the next generation has starts with breathable air and a livable climate.

Help us help the kids have a bright future!

Please consider helping us spread the word to ensure a great turnout for this educational celebration. RSVP now and invite friends and family to join the fun and learning!
