SPANISH LANGUAGE RESOURCES

 ¡Bienvenidos a Nuestro
Centro de Recursos en Línea!

Como parte de nuestro esfuerzo para hacer más disponible los recursos que tenemos para los agricultores, Just Food traducio el Farming for NYC Toolkit, ahora nombrado el Guia para Agricultores que Proveen a la ciudad de Nueva York y selecciono recursos adecuados para este Centro de Recursos. 

El Centro de Recursos incluye nuestras hojas de sugerencias como:

ONLINE RESOURCE CENTER

Welcome to Just Food's Resource Center!

 
As part of our ongoing effort to make our resources readily available to farmers, Just Food created this online Resource Center.

HURRICANE RELIEF INFORMATION

In New York City, the effects of Hurricane Irene were barely felt. However, the same cannot be said for many areas in upstate New York, New Jersey, Vermont and throughout the Northeast. Tropical storms Irene and Lee inflicted millions of dollars in damage on local farms. At least 15 vegetable farmers in Just Food’s network suffered serious losses from flooding, some losing up to 80% of their remaining harvest.

ADDITIONAL PRODUCT PROVIDERS

File 1727

Just Food refers to all non-vegetable products as Additional Products and to the producers of non-vegetable items as Additional Product Providers. Additional Products include, but are not limited to, fruit, eggs, dairy, meat, wine, bread, honey, maple syrup, flowers, and more.

Additional Product Providers have two options for marketing their products through Just Food:

GROW FOR NYC: JUST FOOD COMMUNITY- RUN FARMERS' MARKET NETWORK

What is the Just Food Community- Run Farmers' Market Network? 

Just Food supports a network of community-run markets and gardens in New York City. The markets are run by volunteers or local organizations who want fresh, quality produce in their neighborhoods.  Flexible options for farmers can include dropping off produce at the markets and setting up at the market site.  The markets usually have low vendor fees and will work with farmers so that everyone benefits. 

GROW FOR NYC: Fresh Food for All

What is Fresh Food for All?
Just Food's Fresh Food for All program helps food pantries and other emergency food programs make fresh, nutritious, locally grown food available to families and individuals in need.

GROW FOR NYC: CSA in NYC

What is CSA in NYC?
Just Food matches farmers within our foodshed (250 miles from NYC) with CSA groups in the city.  CSA members pay the farmer a share price at the beginning of the season.  During the growing season, the farmer drops off a variety of farm-fresh food for the CSA members each week. 

MEET A JUST FOOD FARMER

At Just Food, part of our mission is to narrow the distance between local farmers and New York City eaters. We’d love it if everyone could get a chance to see their farmers in action on the farm, but we know that busy New Yorkers don’t always have the time to get out of the city. In 2012, thanks to a grant from the USDA Risk Management Agency and the talents of Brooklyn-based videographer Anna Mumford, we had the opportunity to bring a slice of life of 10 of our farmers to you.
 
We love our farmers, and we think you will too.
