Food Access Initiatives

GrowNYC Food Access Initiatives get fruits and vegetables where they are most needed: everywhere. Income shouldn't be an impediment to good health. GrowNYC believes that healthy food access is a basic human right.

We make regionally-produced food accessible to all New Yorkers through the promotion and acceptance of nutrition benefits, incentive coupons and credit cards.

We rely on partnerships with the City and community-based organizations to enhance food access in New York City. This effort improves access to good food and provides critical revenue for our farming community. 
 

GrowNYC’s New York State Regional Food Hub (The Hub) is entering the final stages of development and is expected to open in the Fall of 2024.
