Fresh Pantry Project

Each week during the height of the season, farmers from 35 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.

On Monday, July 11, we launched the “Oh SNAP!” educational campaign with a live mural painting on a Greenmarket, Co. delivery truck. The “Oh SNAP!” campaign was designed to draw attention to the fact that GrowNYC’s network of Greenmarkets accept electronic benefits cards (EBT) and shoppers can use their SNAP benefits to purchase farm-fresh produce from the region’s mid-sized family farmers.

  • 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.
