Here for the Long Run Campaign: GrowNYC Needs Your Support

For the last 50 years, we have believed that everyone can make a positive impact and that collective action is necessary to secure a clean and healthy environment for future generations.

We have worked nonstop throughout this challenging year to:

  • Provide fresh, healthy food choices to New Yorkers in every borough, quickly implementing strict safety protocols that served as a model for farmers markets across the country
  • Launch a free emergency food box program for communities facing food insecurity exacerbated by the pandemic
  • Grow and donate more than 12,500 lbs. of produce (and counting) from our Teaching Garden at Governors Island to neighborhood groups distributing food to their communities
  • Create free digital educational programming and resources for all ages on a brand new distance learning site
  • Build and restore community gardens that provide a place for respite and where neighbors can grow their own food

GrowNYC is facing unprecedented challenges and we need your financial support to keep basic programs going: community gardens, food access sites, composting and environmental education.

Give $50 or more by December 31, 2020 to enter to win 2 JetBlue round trip travel certificates.
