City Chickens Campaign Against Hunger
Last week, Eggzy was a proud participant in one of Just Food’s City Chicken Projects. Mark joined Greg and Justin from Just Food and a team from NYC’s City Chicken Meetup Group to build an urban chicken coop in the backyard garden of the Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger in Brooklyn.
Just Food is a non-profit organization that connects communities and local farms with the resources and support they need to make fresh, locally grown food accessible throughout the Greater New York City area.
The City Chicken Project works with local chicken keepers to create model projects from which residents can learn how to keep happy, healthy, and productive chickens in an urban environment.
Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger is a nonprofit organization that provides emergency food and other social services to residents in central Brooklyn. They plan to distribute the eggs from their City Chicken Project to many of the 9,000+ Brooklyn residents who receive groceries through the pantry each month.
