Just Food is a nonprofit organization that empowers and supports community leaders in their efforts to advocate for and increase access to healthy, locally-grown food, especially in underserved NYC neighborhoods. Since 1995, Just Food has convened major summits and conferences that educate and engage the public in local food, farm, and social justice issues. A pioneer in food justice and sustainable agriculture, Just Food emphasizes the role of community leadership and ownership of food projects, particularly in low-income communities. Just Food provides 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 New York City a healthier place ot live and eat.
