Who We Are

REC is a grassroots environmental justice organization located in Worcester, Massachusetts--New England's second largest city. Founded in 1971, REC has been dedicated to building healthy, sustainable and just communities in Worcester and beyond for more than 40 years. Our members, staff, board and volunteers work together to accomplish this mission by: - Developing and coordinating programs that bring community members together to address environmental justice issues in the places where we live, work, and play; - Organizing neighborhood residents–including youth–and training community leaders to tackle environmental justice issues in our neighborhoods; - Providing events and forums for environmental justice education, networking, visioning and problem-solving in Worcester and beyond; - Advocating at local, state, and national levels for public policies that foster environmental and social justice, ensure ecological sustainability and equitable access to clean air and water, open space, local, organic and nutritious food, clean energy, green jobs, and healthy homes, schools, workplaces and neighborhoods.

We have four Food Justice programs: UGROW, YouthGROW, Community Farmer's Markets, and the Worcester Regional Food Hub. Please visit our website for more information on what we do:
