It is a tremendous honor for us to receive this award and the recognition that Just Food is indeed a Neighborhood Builder.

We engage in this work by focusing on increasing access to fresh, healthy, locally grown food in all New York City communities.

Help Just Food bring good food within reach for a family in need.

In many NYC neighborhoods, CSA is the most affordable way to procure fresh, organic, locally grown food. In some areas, it is the only way. For a family on food stamps, CSA can be a great option - if we can make sure it's accessible.
