Corbin Hill Food Project
The mission of Corbin Hill Food Project is to supply fresh vegetables and fruit where they are needed most: "Llevar alimentos frescos a las áreas más necesitadas." Since 2009, when a group of committed, Harlem-based citizens came together to give us our start, we have brought together a dynamic network of farmers; a broad range of deeply rooted community health, education, environmental and service groups; and more than a thousand participating individuals in Harlem, Washington Heights and the Bronx who care about good food and the way it is grown. Built on trust and shared values, we are working to rebuild the connections between upstate rural farmers and urban "food desert" communities that the global food industry has for many decades devastated. Through our Farm Share and Community Health Partner programs, our goal is to make broad and deep impacts on the health and well-being of the children, families and communities of New York City, while at the same time contributing to the economic and agricultural revitalization of New York State.
