Much more information, including costs, schedules and what you get, at justfood.org. The non-profit organization connects communities and local farms with resources and support to make fresh, locally grown food accessible to all New Yorkers.
Since 1995, Just Food has pioneered sustainable food models, including CSAs, community-run farmers’ markets, and farm-to-food pantry programs. “It serves thousands of New Yorkers by forging partnerships between local farms, neighborhood groups, and consumers, and by providing urban communities with a framework for growing, and knowing, healthy food.” (Photo: CT)
