Happy New Year to our partners in the quest for healthy food options for all New Yorkers! We’re moving ahead with exciting new initiatives: Our grant project in partnership with the USDA for community garden improvements drew over 100 applications, and we’re embarking on a new chapter in our Community Chef training program. We’re updating our resources for CSAs and will soon be holding a forum for CSAs – stay tuned. And folks are taking notice: Just Food was featured on WABC7! Read on to learn about all of this and more.
Just Food is active on many fronts this winter, but we can’t do it alone. Please help us by donating whatever you can to support our CSAs, Community Chefs, farm network, and vital new programs!
