Harlem suffers from a paucity of choices for fresh foods and vegetables and an abundance of fast food options – a combination sometimes referred to as a “food desert.”  The Harlem4 Center for Change, a community-based not-for-profit organization, is spearheading a coalition of groups in a “Food Movement” to address this issue.  Join them this Saturday, October 9th, for THE HARLEM HARVEST FESTIVAL FRESH FOOD SUMMIT.   Events occur at a variety of locations in the Frederick Douglass-Adam Clayton Powell corridor between 115th and 118th.  For more information and to register, check out the H4 website.
