the project

This project will provide food to over 400 additional families  for Holidays in October, November, and December 2023

For 19 years, Brooklyn Rescue Mission Urban Harvest Center has been an Urban Farmer  Organization and Emergency Food Provider in Brooklyn, New York. The idea came to grow fresh food as a Black Farmer because I was raised on a farm as a child. I watched my grandmother harvest fresh food for the dinner table daily. I realized I could grow food in large quantities for our food pantry guests like my father, grandfather, and mother. 

The community we, as food justice serve, have many health problems from eating cheaper processed foods with less nutritional value. The leaders of Brooklyn Rescue Mission Urban Harvest Center decided that there needed to be a means for community members to have access to fresh food to improve the community's health. 

the steps

Brooklyn Rescue Mission Urban Harvest Volunteers will order and purchase food from local suppliers and farmers for the Holidays. 

Brooklyn Rescue Mission will provide the purchased foods to individuals and families in need on the service Days, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays in  October, November, and December 2023. 

Brooklyn Rescue Mission will recruit new volunteers to help serve the long lines of food guests in October, November, and December 2023.
