After I expressed an interest in volunteering with a food related nonprofit, a knowledgeable friend led me to Just Food. Just Food connects local farmers with NYC residents by fostering communication and cooperation among groups concerned with farming, hunger, and sustainability issues. Programs such as The City Farms, Community Food Education, Fresh Food For All, Food Justice, and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) support local farms and food production, and promote equitable food distribution.
I have been assisting Just Food as it tests new recipes and revises its Veggie Tipsheets. Developed for CSA members and farmers, this invaluable resource contains recipes, selection and storage tips, and nutritional information for more than one hundred regional fruits and vegetables.
