Just Food Potluck Party
Jimmy’s No. 43 (43 East 7th St., Manhattan)
Free with a dish, $5 without, RSVP required
To celebrate the incredible work of Just Food to bring healthy, local food to communities that need it most, we’ll be having a community potluck. Just Food is a non-profit organization that connects communities and local farms with the resources and support they need to make fresh, locally grown food accessible to all New Yorkers.
Just Food provides regional farmers and food producers, CSA organizers and everyday eaters with the resources and support they need to establish and experience healthy food systems — in every neighborhood. Since 1995, Just Food has pioneered and championed the proliferation of a wide range of sustainable food programs, including CSAs, community-run farmers’ markets, and farm-to-food pantry programs. Just Food serves thousands of New Yorkers by forging partnerships between local farms, food pantries and consumers, and by providing urban communities with a framework for growing, and knowing, healthy food.
We’ll be raffling off a copy of the new Food52 cookbook, Prohibition Bakery cupcakes, Greenmarket tokens, and other great gifts; having a competition for most delicious potluck contribution; and enjoying great tastes of food fresh from local farms. And, of course, enjoying good beers and great company.
