Future year round programs with support will build the C.A.S.E.  

     (citizenship, activism, service, education) 

Future programs with support will build the C.A.S.E. (citizenship, activism, service, education) for the power of celebrating multicultural communities through citizenship, activism, service, and education. Citizenship informs a community that actively participates in voting and being involved with neighborhood associations, supporting community organizations, and buying local. Activism promotes strong relationships with city council and community organizing. Service provides local information for volunteering in the schools and neighborhood. Education creates space for passing down cultural heritage through cooking classes, storytelling, dance classes, art creation, musical performances, rendering historical maps, and marking historical sites. 

The Taste of the Junction honors the past, supports the present, 

and invents the future where all cultures are valued.

It's About the People, The Cultures, The Cuisines
