initiatives link and pursue economic, environmental, and social justice through food systems. Just Food began in autumn 1994 as the all-volunteer effort of a number of New York City and Northeast food-system leaders to promote a holistic approach to food, hunger and agriculture issues.
Just Food envisions a strong regional food system -- incorporating a diversity of rural farms and a robust urban farming component -- that preserves ecosystems, reduces pollution, promotes social justice, provides education about the environment, and invigorates rural and urban economies.
By using food as the common element linking diverse organizations and individuals, Just Food works to improve the quality of life in New York City and the region.
