East Brooklyn Mutual Aid | Black Radish Grocery
Chestnut Commons, Cypress Hills
Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce member, East Brooklyn Mutual Aid, is asking our community to help them open Black Radish Grocery to bring healthy food options to East New York.
East Brooklyn Mutual Aid has successfully distributed more than one million pounds of food to over 100,000 residents through Black Radish Home Delivery, in which they source low-cost groceries from predominantly Black distributors and farmers and deliver them directly to the doors of hungry New Yorkers. Now it’s time to open Black Radish Grocery.
Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce member, East Brooklyn Mutual Aid, is asking our community to help them open Black Radish Grocery. Please help them open their doors by making a donation.
East New York has become the city’s third-largest food swamp, an area where healthy food options are outnumbered by abundant fast food, junk food outlets, convenience stores, and liquor stores. The lack of healthy food options results in poor health for the community’s residents. The East Brooklyn Food Hub will address the historical inequities that have led to disproportionate health issues, labor inequity, economic injustice, and instability with access to fresh food. Let’s help Black Radish Grocery open it’s doors to the community!
