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. In addition to providing vegetables for the city's most vulnerable residents, this program provides additional markets for our farmers and teaches cooking skills and nutrition information to food pantry staff and their clients.

Just Food works with 48 food pantries and soup kitchens in all 5 boroughs, connecting them with farmers, providing cooking demonstrations, and arranging farm visits to acquaint the staff and clients with their farmers and the local food system. Our partners include the Hunger Prevention and Nutrition Assistance Program (HPNAP) of New York, United Way of NYC, NYC emergency food programs, and rural family farmers.

Connecting Local Farms to Emergency Food Providers

Fresh Food for All has two models to connect local farms and organizations serving low-income communities:

1. Local Produce Link
2. Direct Purchasing
