Through the adversity of the past week, we’ve been inspired by our fellow New Yorkers. The friendliness that outsiders say New Yorkers lack bubbled up as we walked across bridges together, stood together in crowded lines and buses, and shared rides with strangers. Generosity poured forth as New Yorkers who came through the storm relatively unscathed opened up their homes to friends and family; they donated their time, money and other resources to lighten the burden for others who were less fortunate.
Just Food Celebrates Fifth Annual LET US EAT LOCAL
We are thrilled to partner with 40 of New York City's most acclaimed chefs and food artisans as we celebrate the delicious core of our work: uniting NYC residents with sensational seasonal food grown on local farms.
We are proud to welcome the youngest member of Just Food's Farmers' Circle—a place reserved for the most generous of all our wonderful supporters. Last month 12 year-old Sam Olsen raised nearly $1,200 for Just Food's City Chicken Project.
For most city folks, the measly rainfall and brisk winds of Tropical Storms Irene and Lee left a brief and underwhelming impression. But for many local farmers, the floods of last fall's tropical storms caused considerable physical and financial damage, which they've been working hard to clear away all winter.
Winter is the time when farmers in the Northeast get a much-needed break to reflect and prepare for next season. It’s also the time of year when farmers are a bit easier to catch for a conversation. This month we caught up with Chris Kaplan-Walbrecht who, with wife Eve (right), co-owns Garden of Eve Organic Farm on Long Island’s North Fork.
