Just Food empowers and supports community leaders to advocate for and increase access to healthy, locally-grown food, especially in underserved NYC neighborhoods.

We provide training and resources to community members so they can:

Launch Projects like farmers’ markets and community supported agriculture (CSA) groups.

Educate their neighbors in fundamental cooking and urban farming skills.

Advocate to make their corner of NYC a healthier place to live and eat.

Each year, nearly a quarter million New Yorkers access fresh food in their neighborhood through Just Food’s network of community food projects.
