Harlem Harvest Festival "FRESH FOOD SUMMIT" This Saturday


By NativeNewYorker

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.

    @harlem cubano, no disrespect but that is an attitude of laziness honestly, not a matter of convenience or economics… ur health will pay for it in the end.

    that same $20 u spend on fast food can buy u fruits&vegetables, use the rice u have at home or potatoes or pasta and some chicken breast and u have urself a healthy meal for cheap. do ur research and u will see, education is key.

    nevertheless, i think this is a great idea and im looking forward to all the new markets and fresh food that will be coming to harlem.

    Sad to say but it’s a matter of economics. You can feed a family of 4 under $20 in any fast food joint.

    I spend that alone on vegetables when I shop at my local places and we
    we are just 2 people, then add everything else and time.

    Sad to say but the average Harlem community does not have the time and
    money for healthy living.
