Fresh Pantry Project

Each week during the height of the season, farmers from 38 Greenmarkets donate their fresh fruits and vegetables to local food pantries, homeless facilities, soup kitchens, and community centers in all 5 boroughs. In 2015, our farmers donated nearly 1,000,000 pounds of food!

Greenmarket partners with City HarvestNew York City Coalition Against Hunger and Food Bank for New York City to distribute locally grown food from Greenmarkets to food pantries across the city. 

By connecting regional farmers with in-need New Yorkers, Greenmarket, City Harvest, New York City Coalition Against Hunger and Food Bank for New York City, are helping to address hunger and build community around healthy, local foods.

This week, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced New York State's investment of $15 million in the construction of a new Greenmarket Regional Food Hub in the Bronx. The hub, which will be used by GrowNYC's Greenmarket Co. program, will be a state-of-the-art 120,000 square foot facility that will greatly increase New Yorkers' access to the freshest, most nutritious locally grown food the region has to offer.

  • Greenmarket

    Our network of farmers markets, Youthmarkets, Fresh Food Box pick-ups, and Greenmarket Co. ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food.

  • Recycle

    We blanket the five boroughs with resources like textile and food scrap collection, Stop 'N' Swaps, and free training to make waste reduction easy for all.

  • Garden

    We build and rejuvenate community & school gardens in all 5 boroughs, and support even more gardens through volunteer days, technical assistance, school garden grants, & more.

  • Teach

    We foster future environmental stewards by providing 60,000 children each year with programs that provide meaningful interactions with the natural environment.
