Brooklyn Rescue Mission, Bed-Stuy Farm−New York, New York

Bed-Stuy Farm
Brooklyn Rescue Mission, Bed-Stuy Farm

In 2002, a group of clergy and community members founded the Brooklyn Rescue Mission (BRM) as a response to a growing need in the Central Brooklyn community for fresh food and warm clothing.  The BRM created the Food Pantry as a distribution center for the hungry in their community.  In 2005, the Mission entered into a partnership with the City of New York to transform a nearby vacant lot into a vegetable garden.  Since then, community members, teens, and BRM staff have been growing fresh produce on the once-vacant lot.  BRM sells portions of the produce grown at the Bed-Stuy Farm at their Malcolm X Farmer’s Market and donates the rest to Food Pantry recipients.
