A Day to Celebrate Food & Family in Bed-Stuy
Which is why, for the second consecutive year, we’re partnering with the Coalition for the Improvement of Bed-Stuy to present the Bedford Stuyvesant Food and Family Day, on Saturday, October 13th from 10am to 2pm at Restoration Plaza on Fulton Street.
Dozens of local food and health-focused organizations, advocates, educators, and businesses are coming together to present this day of free workshops, cooking demos, farmers market and green grocer tours, and family-friendly festivities.
Together, we’re highlighting the many affordable Bed-Stuy-based resources available to residents, and how we all can provide healthy, complete meals for our families on a budget—as well as become growers of our own fruits and vegetables.
Plus, we’re serving up a delicious and nutritious free lunch (with recipes)!
We’ll also be recognizing local food heroes—including youth and nonprofit organizations—who you can nominate here.
Most importantly, Food and Family Day is a space for neighbors to talk about local issues and the changes the community as a whole can implement toward addressing hunger and health challenges.
Interested in volunteering at Food and Family Day? Email CIBS Program Manager Aysu Kirac at firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability and interest area.
Whether or not you’re a Bed-Stuy resident, this is a day you won’t want to miss!
