Just Food empowers and supports community leaders to advocate for and increase access to healthy, locally-grown food, especially in underserved NYC neighborhoods.
Each year, nearly a quarter million New Yorkers access fresh food in their neighborhood through Just Food's network of community food projects.
On January 20th, Jimmy Carbone and Matt Timms emceed Just Food’s
2015-2016 CSA Smackdown at Brooklyn’s Bell House to crown the most creative cooks from Just Food’s CSA network. Teams representing Yorkville,
Katchkie Farm, Grand Street, Sunset Park, and Mid-Island/South Shore CSAs were given 30 minutes and a mystery CSA share to create a winning seasonal dish. After an electric and energetic competition, judges Andrea Beaman, Sawdayah Brownlee, Anne Saxelby, and Matt Eisenman declared Grand Street CSA member Rachel Mirensky and cooking partner Anthony Broderick the winners.
