BENEFITING: JUST FOOD INC

ORGANIZER: Molly/Matt

Jen Owens

THE STORY:

Just Food has been the leader in connecting local farms to NYC neighborhoods and communities since 1995. Their mission is to unite local farms and city residents of all economic backgrounds with fresh, seasonal, sustainably grown food.

In the city, Just Food tackles deficiencies in food access and security by increasing the production, marketing and distribution of fresh food from community gardens and urban agriculture sites, on the one hand, and promoting Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) initiatives (food-buying clubs), on the other. The aim is to turn “food deserts” (i.e., neighborhoods underserved by supermarkets and other food retailers) into “islands of sustainability.” 


In the countryside, Just Food is addressing 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.
