City Chicken Application

Do you want chickens in your garden?

Do you want a new chicken coop?

Just Food’s City Chicken Project can help you build a new chicken coop and bring chickens to your community or school garden.

Who can apply:
•    Community groups or schools of 8 or more people. Individuals may not apply. 
•    The community group must be located in the 5 boroughs of NYC and must have enough outdoor space for hens (8 square feet per hen).
•    This is for relatively small projects (5-7 hens).
•    Preference will be given to groups who plan to use the eggs to feed their school or community, and to schools/community groups that are located in neighborhoods that have fewer ways to access fresh, local food. 

What you need to do:
1.    Review eligibility requirements above.
2.    Call or email Greg at Just Food if you have further questions.
3.    Talk to the land owner or school administrators where the chickens will be kept to get permission.
4.    Fill out the application or answer the questions over the phone.
