Street parking can take awhile to find, there are multiple lots in the area. Public transit is best; the location is very close to the Vernon-Jackson stop off the 7 train.
The outdoor lot. Come to the gate with the large “The Connected Chef” sign overhead.
Access is more than just providing groceries. Access means one’s ability to obtain healthy groceries, prepare them in a culturally relevant way, and the opportunity to engage in the growing and cultivating of that food. Our community’s connection to the land is our ultimate goal. The nutrient-dense groceries that The Connected Chef distributes comes 80% from local farms and distributors in the NY, NJ, PA area. We believe that reconnecting with where our food comes from is the first step towards food sovereignty for all communities.
