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.

  1. @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.

  2. 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.

  3. We. Live on 129th and Lenox we are in need of gourmet foods. Bagels, tasti d lite and upscale everything. Whoever opens up this way will get great tax credits and lots of upscale business..
