East New York Farms! runs a farmers market, training program, and more to bring healthy fresh food into one of Brooklyn’s poorest neighborhoods. Several years ago on the eve of opening its annual farmers’ market, which was just getting traction in the community, its trucks and refrigeration systems were vandalized. The Fund acted fast to step in to pay for needed replacement equipment so the market could open on schedule, keeping the momentum of community support going and benefiting the community and area farmers.
