Just Food

Introducing a new link for our blog:
Just Food. To see our other links, scroll down the right side of our blog.

Just Food connects local farms to NYC neighborhoods. In the city, they work on increasing the production, marketing and distribution of fresh food from community gardens and urban agriculture sites, and promoting Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) initiatives. They aim is to turn “food deserts” (i.e., neighborhoods underserved by supermarkets and other food retailers) into “islands of sustainability.”

In the countryside, they address the rapid decline of family farms and the loss of agricultural land by linking small and medium-scale producers to new markets in New York City.
Learn more about their work.
