Nourishing NYC takes a different approach to feeding those in need. Its thousands of volunteers farm the city, encourage supporters to buy local, and remain committed to the org’s slogan: “nutrition for all.”
Its CEO, Gina Keatley, talks about creating a generation of healthy foodies here and here, and they recently received Charity of the Year from Stay Classy. Gina herself has incurred a great deal of personal debt in order to found Nourishing NYC, and often works for free so that the organization may flourish. Talk about dedication!
Because of their emphasis on urban farming and nutrition, they were featured in the Farm City NYC documentary, below.
Their Junior Chef program looks AMAZING…. and like pretty much every non-profit ever, they need YOUR HELP to continue offering programs like this to young people living in at-risk communities. Wanna donate?
