For Many Brooklynites, a Good Meal is Hard to Find
Join us on October 1st for Bedford Stuyvesant Food and Family Day
"I have seen less produce, less food, less funding, less everything, but more people," Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger's Program Manager Tamara Dawson tells City Limits this week.
With your support through our Caring Neighbors Fund and our Green Communities Fund, we are taking a multipronged approach to making sure our neighbors not only have food on their tables, but that the food is fresh, wholesome, and beneficial to the local environment.
With our partners the Coalition for the Improvement of Bed-Stuy, we're presenting a day of family-focused workshops, cooking demos, community garden tours, and festivities to educate community members about the fight against hunger in their backyard, and the tools they need to fight back for health. RSVP and invite your friends!
We Love "Book-lyn"!
Thanks to all who stopped by our table at last Sunday's Brooklyn Book Festival to learn more about our work and to participate in literary trivia (courtesy of our Senior Program Officer Stuart Post, who also introduced a panel on "Literary Brooklyn" with author Evan Hughes).
Congrats to the two winners selected from nearly 100 entries: Sarah V. of Carroll Gardens and Greg S. of Woodside, Queens. A Brooklyn Community Foundation tote bag and T-shirt are headed your way!
"Like" our Facebook page to try the trivia out for yourself! Answers will be posted in the comments throughout the weekend.
